The October meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will take place on Sunday October 9th 2016. As discussed at earlier meeting this meeting will take place at the National Museum of the Air Force (http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/), located at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
Recently the fourth building at the museum opened. The exhibits include several of the Presidential aircraft as well as the XB-70 Valkyrie. I was actually at Wright Patt when the XB-70 arrived in 1969. It was an overcast day and the odor of jet fuel was heavy in the air ad the XB-70 landed on runway 23R.
We will assemble in the lobby at 1 PM. This is earlier than our normal meeting time. The museum closes at 5 PM and this should allow plenty of time to see all of the exhibits.
Please note the change of time and location of the October meeting. WE typically move our October meeting away from Waynesville to avoid the heavy traffic associated with Waynesville’s annual Sauerkraut Festival.
