For our Saturday, July 22, BBQ Lunch meeting, Scott Thompson will present on a widely-known but less-understood topic: Scrapping Our World War II Air Force.
Almost everyone has seen pictures of the endless rows of surplus warplanes gathered at remote desert fields after the end of World War II. Why were these bombers and fighters seemingly abandoned? What happened to them? Did we just scrap them and turn them into pots and pans? This presentation provides the details of what we did with a massive air force no longer needed.
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.
And, for your convenience, we are now accepting credit and debit cards, plus other methods of electronic payment, for our meals, t-shirts, dues, and donations. Please join us on Saturday.
Come on out and enjoy some good food and hangar flying too.

Our online IMC/VMC club meeting for May will be held from 7 to 8 pm this coming Thursday, May 4. The IMC “What Would You Do?” involves a morning departure from San Carlos airport while Bay Area fog is causing low IFR conditions, and a problem that develops right after takeoff. The VMC scenario is on the opposite side of the country, with a late afternoon VFR departure planned; while you are lined up for takeoff, a landing aircraft in front of you runs off the runway.
FAA Wings credit is available for this event by registering here.
We look forward to a lively exchange of ideas, and everyone is invited to participate.
