Secretary Jackson Attends Aerospace Days at Lonesome Pine Airport


In late April, Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson attended Aerospace Days at Lonesome Pine Airport in Wise, Virginia. The event featured model aircraft and rockets, with the first launch kicked off by the Secretary.

State Delegate Terry Kilgore and state Senator Phillip Puckett, both local representatives, spoke to students who developed an experiment sent to the International Space Station last year. Fireworks, telescope observations, and a screening of the film "October Sky" were also part of the weekend's festivities.
