EAA284 Chapter Meeting January 13 2013


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.

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.
