Corner July 2005:
I just returned from, for me, one of the best EAA AirVentures that I have ever attended.
Last year I missed the fly-in because of a slight medical
problem so I was most eager to see what
had to offer this year. And to say the
least I was not disappointed. How often
get the opportunity to see such a
diversity of aircraft in one place?
There they were three B-17’s, a B-24, Mustangs galore, T-6’s in what appeared almost to be an endless
the P-38, Glacier Girl now fully
restored after being entombed for years under the force of the crushing ice of Iceland,
the Global Flyer and last and
certainly not least Space Ship One and White Knight.
The Air Show which commemorated the 60th anniversary of the
end of WWII was all the more spectacular not only
because of the presence of all
these great aircraft, but the honor to the memory of the men who fought in
The Forums were equally exciting with Mike Melvill recounting his experience in the development and
testing of Space Ship One,
which culminated in the successful
flights, which brought Scaled Composites the X Prize and Melvill,
Rutan and company,
the Collier Trophy. Rod Machado was not only his usual entertaining
self, but very informative on some of the finer points of flying.
Then there were the variety of work shops which helped to
clear away some of the doubts and mysteries one imagines before
seeing the real thing encountered
in any new project. All in all this AirVenture recharged my enthusiasm for the activity we all
share. Now for next year’s Oshkosh
I only need to remind myself to make early housing reservations.
For those of you who wish to get together before the meeting
for dinner we are going to gather at 6:00pm at the Town Center II
located at Cheyenne
and Simmons on the North side of Cheyenne (from
the airport head North on Rancho and turn right onto Cheyenne). I think this will hopefully be a definite improvement over
our other location both as to servers and food.
Our next meeting at North Town
will feature Mike Perger on Basic Aircraft Electrical
This will be the third major presentation this year. I hope that you will email me your feedback
on the various programs
to date as well as any future
programs you may wish the Chapter to arrange.
Regards and safe flying,
