EAA284 Meeting Sunday December 11 2011

EAA Chapter 284 will hold its December meeting on Sunday December 11, 2011 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield.

Students from the Greene County Career Center will do a presentation on Jessie Maude “Chubbie” Miller, an Australian aviatrix who made an emergency landing in Xenia OH during the 1929 woman’s air race. She was a charter member of the 99’s. IN 1927 she became the first woman to complete an England to Australia flight.

After learning that Chubbie Miller made her landing in Xenia the students researched the event and will present results of their research to the cheaper, and later to the Xenia city council. It is their hope to raise money for a commemorative plaque to be place near the site where she landed. The students are doing this as part of a community service requirement for school.

Let’s have a good turn out and show the students our appreciation for their efforts.
