EAA 690 Veterans November 2018
This Saturday, December 1st, EAA 690 will host Mr. William Etheridge. Bill, a Chapter 690 member, began his aviation career in the early ’60’s as an Aerospace Specialist, Product Manager and International Marketing Manager personally covering Lockheed Georgia, Grumman Aerospace, Avco Aero Structures and McDonald Douglas. In these capacities he worked on the F-15 NATO fighter, the French and British Concord SST and for seven years for Rockwell International on the B-1 bomber and Space Shuttle tooling.
As part of his presentation, Bill will is donating a picture of the US-SST to our Chapter that was presented to him and to his company by Boeing Aerospace in Seattle, Washington.
If you have any interest in being part of the RV-12 flying club it is very important that you make yourself known by contacting Brian Michael, Randy Epstein or John Post. The Chapter would like to finish the project and have it flying by Chapter members. If this does not come to fruition the project will be offered for sale in its current condition.
We had a decent turnout for our mothly chapter meeting, and I want to thank everyone that came out. I believe everyone enjoyed hearing all the stories and experiences of those who've served this great country.

Celebration of Veterans:
We would like to celebrate the stories, lives, and sacrifices made for our country by our fellow chapter members and guests. We encourage those that can to wear their uniform (or parts of it) and if desired to tell some stories. We'll have cookies, cake and ice cream, and hope to have the Boy Scouts post the colors. Also, we'll have our veteran's scrapbook on hand for show and tell. If you have pictures you'd be willing to contribute to the collection, we would love to share them.
