Society for Aviation History

   President's Message for March/April 2019

The Society for Aviation held its first general meeting of 2019 at the Moffett Field Museum on Saturday, Feb. 2. It was a very well-attended meeting and I would like to thank the members and guests who enjoyed the event. Also, I would like to thank Bill Stubjaer and the staff of the Moffett Field Museum for all their help in making it a successful meeting. And, as always, Emergency BBQ provided a delicious and filling meal.

Since the meeting was held at Moffett Field, and our December meeting covered the history of the former Naval Air Station, it was very appropriate that the February meeting would also be related to Moffett Field. David Trojan discussed the crashes of two aircraft that he has researched and that had ties to Moffett Field. Trojan also had artifacts that had been recovered from the crashes on display, that he has donated to the museum. If you didn't have the opportunity to attend the meeting, I recommend you stop by the museum to see these artifacts in their new display. A full recap of the meeting appears later in this issue of Touch & Go.

I would like to take a moment to talk about something that I have brought up before. The Touch & Go newsletter is by the SAH membership and for the SAH membership, and will only be as good as we make it. So, if you have anything about aviation history that you would like to share or you have an idea for an article you'd like to write for the newsletter, please share it with your fellow members by submitting it to editor Betty Veronico. Visits to airports, aviation museums, or photos from your travels are greatly appreciated. The diverse contributions from our members are what has made Touch & Go such as great newsletter! Guidelines for newsletter article and photo submission can be found on our website at: www.sfahistory.org/guidelines.htm .

Our next meeting will be held on April 6th and details can be found later in this newsletter. So, see you in April and, as always, please tell and or bring a friend.

Rick Turner
