Wings Over Maryland
Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum Gala

October 11

Photograph of astronaut and Essex native Tom Jones.

The Museum presents its annual gala, From Essex to Orbit, and honors veteran astronaut and Essex native Tom Jones, a 1973 Kenwood High School graduate. Jones went on to attend the United States Air Force Academy and became an astronaut in July 1991. In 1994, he flew his first flight aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour, a space radar laboratory mission. Emcee and honorary dinner chairman is Jimmy Mathis, WBAL radio host who at the age of 16 became the youngest to fly solo across the country when he flew a single engine Cessna from Ocean City, MD to Long Beach, CA. This gala event assists the Museum to continue offering educational and cultural services.
