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.

Are you aware of how many pilots have misaligned to and even landed on or departed from a wrong runway, and even to a taxiway? On May 19, 2022, the Hot Spots on FAA Charting Publications will have three shapes with two distinct meanings.

Lincoln Regional Display Day This Saturday, March 19th

You’re invited to the Lincoln Regional Display Day

This Saturday, March 19th 0800 – 1200

The Lincoln Regional Airport Display Day will be held this Saturday, February 19th, at KLHM. The weather forecast is for rain showers in the morning becoming steady light rain in the afternoon. Looks like it will be moving into the pilot lounge for the administrative portion of our day.

Two of our Display Day members have stepped up to the plate and are taking their turn helping out running the event. Dan Flom and Mark Siemans will be the coordinators and will bel there to sign your paper work and answer any questions so please make sure to thank them for stepping up. Please consider doing the same and sign up for a future Display Day Saturday. The work party list will be there for you to sign up on. The EAA will be holding their Saturday morning hangar breakfast again so no donuts at our gathering.

For your “Aircraft of Historical Significance” to earn a display day credit, it MUST be displayed for a four hour period, so our display day begins at 0800 and ends at 1200 hours at LHM. So dust off your bird, bring it out for display, and don’t forget to get your paperwork signed. You must display your aircraft to get the credit!

The Display Day effort continues to need your help. Without it they are going to have to shut it down. So if you would like to see it continue you need to volunteer and become a coordinator team member and help run it. Please consider helping (especially those who directly benefit from the tax exemption). They will be answering any questions you might have. It’s actually fun and easy to do, so don’t be shy, give it a try!
