Last Weekend's Activities

Looks like all of last weekend’s activities were very successful.  The weather was great, although a little warm for the fall. I don’t have many or any pictures of the SHAF Air Shows, Girls in Aviation Day, Chennault Safety Seminar or the PIneville Fly-in yet.  Here is one from the SHAF show by Robert Sliger.

If you have any to share and any reports please share them with me.  I will try to have some albums and reports on those events in the Friday edition.

Here are a few I took at the WWII Air, Sea, and Land Festival as that’s where I spent most of my weekend.

To see an album with more of them click HERE.

There are also more photos and videos from some of the events on our Facebook page.  I try to share them as I find them.
