I found out about it 10 minutes before it started, my boss had tickets as we did lots of Lockheed work and he knew all the top brass. He was a bit sick and forgot about it and didn't bring the tickets with him but told me just in time for me to get on the roof. We were only a few blocks away. Do you have any photos....would love to see them.
That was Dec. 20th, 1989. I just posted a video of it all in the Random video thread. http://letsgokings.com/f5/random_vid...69309-137.html
Don knew I was upset that he hadn't told me so the next day he brought in a patch from Kelly's retirement party in '72. I just took this photo with my phone.
No. Didn't have a camera. My dad literally found out about it that morning when he arrived at his work (he was an engineer/metallurgist at Parker Aerospace/Metal Bellows Div in Moorpark). He turned around, drove back to the valley, went to my school's main office, and requested I be gotten from class.
That vid brings back memories.
Heh...he started with them when they were still in Chatsworth. My mom still gets a $200/month pension check from them, and he's been dead 21 years.
