Lunch and a program

We will be having our BBQ lunch this coming Saturday beginning at 11:00. We will run an interesting video done by commentator and pilot Arthur Godfrey on the the Eastern Airlines Super Constellations and, as part of the narrative, the state of aviation in the early 1950s. It should be of interest to all. Come out and join us for the last chapter’s last BBQ lunch for 2018. Lunch at 11:00; program at 12:00 (and chapter board meeting at 13:00…all invited).

And, this will be great opportunity for late-comers to get the EAA Chapter 1541 Holiday Party tickets. Coming up quickly…just a week from Wednesday (December 12).
