2009 - The Year of Valley History - Special thanks to those who attended the Board Meeting of The Museum on Jan. 28th at the Economic Alliance. Bringing about a great Museum for the greater San Fernando Valley is lots of work. Aren't we lucky to have such dedicated and productive leaders.
A year after Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia, Lockheed Air Craft Company began the production of a bomber for the England's and Canada's Royal Air Force. It was christened the Hudson.
About 2500 of the airplanes were built. By the end of World War II this historic bomber was mostly out of service.
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley collects, archives and presents San Fernando Valley Aviation History.
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
