My presentation table consisted of memorabilia from Shemya, still photos, home movie clips and a slide presentation. The movie clips show a reenactment of Rivet Ball's fatal landing on 13 January 1969 and Rivet Amber as she departs Shemya about two weeks before vanishing over the Bering Sea on 5 June 1969. Click Here for the movie clips. The slide show consisted of images from my website, "A Tale of Two Airplanes" @ www.RC135.com. Click Here for an updated version of the slide show.
