The McConnell Story Will Be Shown at the Library This Sunday!

This Sunday the Library will be presenting The McConnell Story.
Arrive at 1:30, a half hour before the movie starts, to learn a bit of the back story behind this remarkable Dover native. The movie will begin at 2 pm.

As the alarm wails, Joe McConnell's squad of Sabre pilots are airborne in seconds. The mission: keep enemy planes away from helicopters evacuating wounded infantrymen. The destination: the deadly corridor called MIG Alley.

Alan Ladd and June Allyson star as real-life jet aviation pioneer Capt. Joseph McConnell Jr. and his devoted wife Butch. And James Whitmore is the commander who first recognizes McConnell's prowess as a "tiger of the sky." In war, McConnell became America's first triple jet ace, downing 16 enemy planes. In peace, he braved the unknown as a test pilot in the jet era's infancy.
