The award (purple heart) was awarded to “Flying Officer” Kenneth Rauch for injuries recieved in the line of duty while making a final landing of his R.C.A.F. (Rauch Composite Air Force) homebuilt RV-3B at Rauch field in the fall of 2010.
Was a fantastic turn out. Seven aircraft from Newark and one from Buckeye departed for Bella’s Restaurant on the shores of Grand Lake in northwestern Ohio. Carl got some great pictures as did Cheryl Harris. With Wendy’s friend who joined us for lunch and helped transport us to the restaurant we had 20 people attend. Close to a record for planes and people on this day.

Wow! What a day to fly. I just posted the pictures from Michael and Carl from the flyout to Rostraver Field in Monongahela PA (KFWQ) and I regret not being able to join them. The pictures say it all.
Two planes left for Wings over Coshocton. Charlie Rhoads and wife Cathy in the Cessna 182. Rollie and Carl Oblinger, and Glen Boarders granddaughter
and grandson in the Cherokee 235. I was not able to stay for the airshow. Some people drove? Several other planes left (VTA) that day for different destinations.
It was a very busy day. Great flying weather! See you all Tuesday at our regular pilot meeting night.
Was well attended on a brisk morning. Four bikers left the airport at 7:30 a.m. rode to Denny’s (flying J) Rt. 70 for breakfast @ 8:00. With the others meeting there. Roy Hurt, Sam Huff, Fred Maki, Bob Bennett, Don Bodle, Gary Kurtz, Molly Kurtz, (has her own bike) Rollie Bailey,
John Sheppard and Tanya, and Larry Arnold (not a biker). We all had a great visit and breakfast. I had Fred lead the pack to the AMA open house museum in Pickerington. It was very nice and informative. We all split up there and all made it home for the “OSU” game. 🙂
Threw the dart at the Detroit sectional, (Charlie). Hit the Lake (Erie) I flew to Mt.Vernon with two taildraggers, Sam Huff in his T-craft and Jack and Fred Maki in their Aeronca. They were not going to go to the lake. Then I and Charlie Rhoads with Bob Marriott and Carl Oblinger continued on to the lake. I called Port Clinton Unicom from the air and had transportation waiting on us upon arrival. Carl got some great pictures and oh, what a Sunday brunch buffet at Mon Ami restaurant! Outstanding! Right up there with Butler Pa. in my books. We had a great flight and had
See you cyclist Saturday morning for our ride-out.
I do not have an accounting of everything yet, but we had a great turn out at our Fly In. Twenty seven pilots registered as having flown in – from all over the state and one from WV.
138 kids flew. I’m sure the two seaters had a more intimate setting while the four/six place had to spread the love. Here are the numbers:
A big thanks to everyone who had a hand in this event from the prep to the tear down and everything in between.
