AAFM and Authors, Researchers and Producers - We get frequent requests from authors, producers and researchers about the various aspects of Air Force missile systems and the people involved with them. We provide historical information to ensure accuracy in documentaries, books and articles, and many AAFM members have participated in interviews used in programs that have been featured on the History Channel, Discovery, PBS, BBC and network and other channels. If you need assistance in your research for a project, feel free to contact AAFM - our members eagerly participate in these projects that document our history.
