A movie premiere Friday night at the Fox Theatre on Springfield’s downtown square will be raising money for Honor Flight of the Ozarks.
The movie, L-Bird: The Little Plane That Did, tells the story of a series of little planes used during World War II to help the Army target their artillery.
The planes were used through supply ships using a system called the Brodie System that allowed them to refuel and take off again without ever having to touch land. The planes, covered in cloth, and their pilots have not been spotlighted in a documentary of this nature.
The movie will be shown as part of an event that begins at 6 p.m. with doors opening at 5:45 p.m.. A reception of wine & hors d’oeuvres will take place at the next door History Museum on the Square.
Tickets are available for $40 each on the website for Honor Flight of the Ozarks, who will gain all the proceeds of the premiere.
