1 pm & 3pm - Echoes in Time Theater“The Truth about Hangar 18!”

Is it true…? Debris and artifacts from crash flying saucers, and even bodies of the small, alien crew members of downed space ships, is it in Hangar 18?  Much of the evidence of these crash retrievals seems to lead us to Dayton, Ohio, and Wright-Patterson's Hangar 18. How much of the legend surrounding the famous Wright-Patterson facility is true? Are there alien artifacts... or possibly live beings from other worlds at the infamous Hanger 18 in Dayton, Ohio? Come, listen, and decide for yourself! Meets in Discovery Theater, Ohio History Center. For all audiences
