AirFest work party for some painting

Richard Pearl needs 14 sheets of 4×8 plywood painted, one side, 10 white and 4 orange.

There are 8 sheets in the EAA hangar and white paint.

Rich will get the orange paint… There is a need to get 6 more 4×8 sheets.

These will be used for the airshow , out along the runway to define the ‘aerobatic box’

Jim is looking for a work crew to paint what is there next week, after Monday.

Then, maybe, on our 1st Sat open hangar day, June 3, we’ll get the remainder painted.

Airfest ground handling volunteers

It is still To Be Decided what day the barriers will be set up, but it will be before Friday, 6/9, since the FAA folks require all prep to be done for the practice airshow.

So, we’ll need 6+ folks to help install the T-posts at the west edge of the ramp, all the way past the north hangars.

Let Jim know if you can help.

Notes:

  • The airspace will be closed on Friday at about 13:00 until 15:30, during the practice airshow.
  • On Saturday, the airspace will be closed at about 10:00 until 15:30.

So, if you are wanting to fly out or into KLHM, avoid these times.

Request for photos

We’re going to have a booth at Airfest, and Scott is requesting photos for display.

Ideally, the photos will be fairly high resolution photos (like over 1 MB) showing members and their airplanes – just airplanes are fine, too, but having the member in the photo would fit better with the poster theme: “What Our Members are Flying.”

Mail anything you have over to Scott.

Presentation on May 13th

Our first Saturday presentation will take place on Saturday, May 13th, at the EAA Chapter Hangar (Hangar S12) at the Lincoln airport from 09:00-11:00. The presentation will be on Scrapping Our World War II Air Force. If you’ve ever seen those pictures of airfields full of thousands of abandoned World War II fighters and bombers waiting to be scrapped and wondered about the backstory, then come out on Saturday to find out. Or, if you want some free muffins and coffee and a place to sit for a couple of hours, then come on out Saturday. Hangar flying from 09:00 to 09:30, and the presentation will start at 09:30.

We are going to try to provide some interesting programs on a variety of subjects presented on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, working around other ongoing activities. Spread the word and check it out.

First Saturday breakfast / flyout

On May 6th, we’ll be having our first Saturday pancake breakfast from 08:30-10:30.

At the last membership meeting, there was interest in EAA 1541 fly-outs. So, weather permitting, from 10:30/11:00, we’ll fly-out to Sutter (O52) for their monthly Open Hangar and Lunch Day.
[ $5, Sutter, O52, rwy 3050 ft, TPA 1058, CTAF 122.7 ]

We encourage pilots with aircraft to offer seats for those members who wish to join us. We’ll have some sort of signup for aircraft and passengers.
