EAA284 Meeting April 11 2010

The April 2010 meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be held on 2 PM Sunday, April 11, 2010 at Red Stewart Airfield (40I), Waynesville, OH. This meeting was originally scheduled as Fly Out/Drive Out meeting at the Champaign Aviation Museum at Grimes Field in Urbana. Because most of our members have elected to go to Grimes Field to assist with the B-25 gathering on April 16-19 it made little sense to make two trips to Urbana in the period of one week. At our meeting on Sunday we will discuss our possible participation in International Learn To Fly Day on Saturday, May 15, 2010. Hopefully we can work with the Stewarts to have members available to talk about flying, building and give Young Eagle Rides.

hindenburgdisaster March 4 is the anniversary of the first flight of the airship Hindenburg, which is better know for the 1937 German Zeppelin disaster at Lakehurst Naval Air Station New Jersey. Aviation contact Dan from airships.net (Twitter: @airships) emailed some information about the website which includes sections of special interest for pilots, such as flight procedures, flight instruments and navigation.

The airships.net site is a non-commercial enterprise and reviewed by a team of respected airship historians link.  The website includes interesting photos, diagrams, and video about the Hindenburg’s history, technology, passenger decks, crew areas, a flight schedule, passenger lists, information about the Hindenburg disaster, etc. If you have an aviation interest, this site is a good source of accumulated archival information.
