Society for Aviation History

   President's Message for March/April 2018

The Society for Aviation History got 2018 off to a great start with a very well-attended meeting on Feb. 3, at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Redwood City. All in all, the meeting was a great success and I want to thank those who attended. This being my first meeting as your president, I would especially like to thank the members of the board of directors, along with our other volunteers, who helped put the meeting on. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Almost 50 members and guests enjoyed a great meal, and listened to Scott Thompson (SAH 060) talk about the current state of the B-17 world, laid out in the fifth edition of his book, Final Cut. Many thanks to Scott for flying in from Lincoln to speak to us. A recap of the meeting can be found later in this newsletter. If you weren't able to attend and would like to see the meeting on DVD, please check the DVD page www.sfahistory.org/speakers.htm on the SAH website, where there is a list of past meeting DVDs available for loan.

Touch & Go editor Betty Veronico is collecting material for our big Summer newsletter. If you have anything you would like to contribute please contact Betty at Betty@sfahistory.org (please copy her email address). Guidelines for submitting newsletter material can be found here: www.sfahistory.org/guidelines.htm

Our next general meeting will be on April 7, in Pleasant Hill. See you then, and please bring a friend!

Rick Turner
