A retired Air Force officer will discuss the Cold War and the strategy of nuclear deterrence during a Saturday, Aug. 20, event at the March Field Air Museum near Riverside.
Lt. Col. Walter Fus, a retired U.S. Air Force command pilot and retired Alaska Airlines captain, will speak at 1 p.m. as part of the Inland Empire Aviation Roundtable series.
His presentation will cover “the capabilities and operational use of nuclear weapons systems, strike aircraft, submarines, inter-continental missiles and the Triad doctrine,” a museum news release states.
Fus was a KC-135A air-refueler pilot at March. He flew KC-135 Strato-tankers for the Strategic Air Command and C-141 Starlifter transport missions during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm before his 1992 retirement, the release states. He is now a museum docent.
The museum is alongside the 215 Freeway at Van Buren Boulevard, adjacent to March Air Reserve Base.
