World War II fighter pilot to be honored at Niagara Aerospace Museum

NIAGARA FALLS – A portrait of a World War II fighter pilot from Niagara Falls will be unveiled next week.

Family members of Capt. William C. Glasgow and officials from the Niagara Aerospace Museum will present the portrait, commissioned by the Pentagon, at 1 p.m. Aug. 23 at the museum, 9900 Porter Road, the old terminal at Niagara Falls International Airport.

Glasgow, who flew more than 80 missions in a P-40 Warhawk over Europe and North Africa, died at age 27 in May 1945 when the experimental plane he was flying crashed at an air show in Ohio.
