There are currently 67 individual members and five groups in the Hall of Fame. The 2017 inductees were chosen by the LSFM Board from over 60 nominees following a review by a panel of 11 distinguished aviation historians and experts from across the country. This year’s honorees are: President George W. Bush, Major General Benjamin D. Foulois, Albert W. “Al” Mooney and the 111th Aero Squadron.
