Saturday, April 22 BBQ Lunch Meeting: Aviation Author Nicholas A. Veronico Presenting
Mark Your Calendars!
For our Saturday, April 22, BBQ Lunch meeting, we are happy to welcome noted aviation author Nicholas A. Veronico to present a program on Wreckchasing.
Wreckchasing is researching, locating, and documenting aircraft crashes and crash sites that occurred before 1970. As the nation’s population expands, we are often encroaching upon historic aircraft crash sites. It is the job of the wreckchaser to respectfully locate and document these sites before they are scavenged by recyclers or built upon by developers. Wreckchasing is an avocation that combines meticulous research, detective work, and outdoor adventure.
Nick will present on a number of aircraft crash sites, both civilian and military, that he has documented over the years. Nick will also have a few of his many books available for purchase including Wreckchasing 101, PB4Y-2 Privateer, and Boeing 377 Stratocruiser.
BBQ Lunch starts at 11:00 at our hangar at the Lincoln Regional Airport. If you are not familiar with our hangar’s location, come to the airport and just follow the “EAA” signs.
The grill is hot from 11:00 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. when it shuts down, so come early. BBQ Lunch is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids 12 or under, and $25 for families.
