EAA Chapter 284 will hold its January chapter meeting Sunday January 13, 2013, 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield (40I) Waynesville OH. Our chapter renewed our EAA affiliation and paid insurance for 2013.

Bob has recently been named a trustee with the Wright Seaplane Base and will update the chapter. During 1912 – 1914 Orville Wright conducted hydro-aeroplane experiments on the bend in the Great Miami River, between what is now the Moraine Airpark and the city of West Carrollton. This is probably the least known aspect of the Wright contribution to aviation. Additional information is available on the new Wright Seaplane Base website as well as information regarding the hydro-aeroplane experiments and the Wright Seaplane Base, Inc. www.wrightseaplanebase.org
