Retired Director, McDonnell Douglas Corporation

Igniting Minds at Tessmann Planetarium


video (90 minutes)


OCA member Don Prescott will be sharing with the club updated information on the efforts to find funding for and build a new Planetarium in Santa Ana. He has some great new news to share with us on this subject.

Don Prescott's three-decade aerospace career began at Edwards Air Force Base in 1963 and culminated with his 1997 retirement from the McDonnell Douglas Corporation in Long Beach where he held numerous leadership positions including General Superintendent, Manager of Facilities Engineering, Director of Facilities Services and Director of Strategic Plans. He chaired the Long Beach Area Transportation Resource Association (LBA2TRA) Board of Directors for eight years through growth and retrenchment years when LBA2TRA was instrumental for obtaining $8.5 million in Federal funds for intersection improvements in the City of Long Beach.
