Chapter 1541’s January Member Meeting will be held at Cattlemens Restaurant, 2000 Taylor Road, Roseville. Join us for the optional dinner beginning at 18:00, with a short business meeting to follow. We will then have a presentation on the Boeing P-26 Peashooter fighter by chapter member Marty Maisel.
The P-26 was a groundbreaking advance for the Army Air Corps when it was introduced in 1932 and remained in service into the early days of World War II. It marked the transition from fabric covered biplanes to all metal monoplanes for the Air Corps but was quickly surpassed by newer designs with enclosed cockpits and retractable landing gear in the fast moving 1930s of aviation technology.
For those ordering dinner, we will order off a special menu with included non-alcoholic beverage and pay $21.65 including tax and gratuity. Guests are encouraged and welcomed.
