Burke-Lakefront Flyout

Burke2Nine Scioto Valley 99s and guests flew in three aircraft to the Burke-Lakefront Airport (Cleveland) on August 27 for a tour of the International Women's Air and Space Museum (IWASM) in the terminal building.  How the collection and display space have grown over the years!  The memorabilia on display are truly impressive.  Although the museum space is open to the public in the terminal building, it is best viewed with a tour guide.  Our very gracious and knowledgeable guide was IWASM Board President Connie Luhta.  Burke1Connie is second from the left in the group photo (taken in front of Christine Mortine's Cessna 185--aka Songbird). Check out the museum's web site at http://www.iwasm.org for more information and future events happening there.

A flyout to Port Clinton scheduled in April had to be canceled due to weather, but we’ll pick that up this summer.  In the meantime, three aircraft and six SV 99s flew together to Raton, NM.  Our destination was the beautiful Casa del Gavilan, near Cimarron, invited there for a long weekend by 99 JoAnn Prater and 49-1/2 husband, Jim.  All three aircraft spent the first night heading to Raton, near Wichita, KS, the guests of Stearman Field (1K1) (see photo).  On the return trip, two of the aircraft (Cessna 180 and Cessna 182) were able to make it back to Columbus in one day, despite the challenge of the stormy weather covering the Midwest, north to south.  The third aircraft, a smaller and slower ship (Grumman Traveler), also made it to the other side of the stormy weather and spent the night in Decatur, well east of the storm.
