Breakfast and a Movie

On Saturday, May 21 we hosted “breakfast and a movie” from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the chapter hangar S-12 at KLHM.  In the spirit of Memorial Day, we served eggs, red-white-and-blue pancakes, coffee and juice.  To honor veterans we also served creamed chipped beef on toast (S.O.S. — ask any vet what that means!) We showed the movie Battle of Britain and are pleased to confirm that the British did once again win the battle.  For intrepid wannabe fighter pilots we gave attendees an opportunity to fly either the F-18E Super Hornet in FlightSim1 or the Spitfire MkIX in FlightSim2.  Both were a hoot in the air, but definitely tested ones skill trying to land.
It was a fine aviation celebration for all!

Brunch with Bud on May 7, 2022

Our May 7, 2022 “Brunch with Bud” event honoring Colonel Clarence E. “Bud” Anderson was an educational and heartwarming event.  Col. Anderson is the only surviving World War II Triple Ace pilot and recently turned 100 years old.  More than 80 attendees visited our EAA hangar at Lincoln Regional Airport, had a tasty brunch and enjoyed hangar chat and a great presentation by one of the Greatest Generation’s most famous pilots.  For those who missed the event, the highlights (including Bud’s presentation) are available on the EAA chapter 1541 YouTube channel.
