Aviation Heritage park soars to new heights under new direction

BOWLING GREEN Ky. – The Aviation Heritage Park is getting a new executive director in Bob Bubnis who is currently the curator of collections and exhibits manager at the National Corvette Museum.

Bubnis hopes to focus on telling the stories of the planes and the Kentucky Aviators that flew them, bringing a more personal touch to the history of aviation in the Commonwealth in hopes that it will inspire a new generation and educate them about the sacrifices of these individuals.

“There’s nothing like seeing somebody looking at exhibits, watching the videos, engaging with interactives and having that influence their life a little bit. You can see that light go on, says, Oh, wow, this might be something I want to do,” Bubnis said.
