Social Distance Coffee Fly-out Sat. April 25th

This morning I saw several pilots/planes not doing much. So a phone call here, a radio contact there I put together a mini fly out. With keeping our distance, one pilot to one plane we flew over to Richard Downing landing and sitting at a couple, three picnic tables having a line guy bring out a pot of coffee. He sat it down and we all pored our own cup. We kept our distance and had some good conversation. Participants:

Cessna 152  Dick Purdue

Mooney  Roy Hurt

Eazy   Mike Toomey

Cessna 152  Chris Anderson

Cessna. 152  Bob Erhard

Cherokee 235 Rollie Bailey

Keep your distance, wear your mask, wash your hands. We’ll get past this situation.

Lake Jennings BSA Troop 325 suggests a link

As member of the Lake Jennings BSA Troop 325, I’m sending the team at EAA 402 some feedback on your links page! I’ve been putting together a list of activities for our troop’s Aviation Merit Badge that we’re working on. The badge requires the troop to visit an airport or air museum and then discuss what they’ve learned. We wanted to make sure the boys had some background information on the history of aviation so I’ve been putting together a document for them! Your page led us to some great websites to check out – thanks for putting it all together!

With that being said, could you add another link to your page for me? I had some of the boys helping me, and they found this history of aviation guide, which I was very impressed with:

The Business of Aviation: History of Flights

This is the page I thought it would fit best on, unless you have a different one in mind:

I didn’t see anything else like it on your page, so I thought it would make a welcomed addition!

Thanks for the link tip Lake Jennings BSA Troop 325! It’s been added to our page with the other aviation links.
