Six Minutes to Freedom: An Evening with Kurt Muse

About the Event

This event is being hosted and co-sponsored by the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center.

Join the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center online or in-person to hear the amazing story of Kurt Muse, who was rescued from a Panamanian prison by American Special Operations Forces after being interrogated and confined by military dictator General Manuel Noriega.

Muse will tell the story of his fight for freedom in Panama as the leader of a group of patriots broadcasting on The Voice of Liberty, an underground radio station; his harrowing interrogation and imprisonment; and his dramatic rescue by the elite Delta forces in Operation Acid Gambit. He will offer his presentation near to the Museum’s Hughes MH-6J helicopter, which was reconstructed from parts of the downed helicopter that rescued him.

The event will be streamed live over Zoom. Attendees are asked to make a $20 donation to the Museum in order to participate. A limited number of VIP tickets will be available to allow a small number of people to attend the event in person at the Museum, meet Mr. Muse, and receive a signed vintage copy of his book, Six Minutes to Freedom.

* VIP admission requires a donation of $1000 or above.
