New MAAF Museum Sign

Visitors should be able to find us now.  Thanks to Bill Coombes, Lyle Thornton and Buffy Cooper (and anybody else I don’t know about) for all their work in putting this together.  The plan is to place this new sign at the corner of Wright Drive and Windecker Street.

Two New Plaques on the Veteran’s Wall of Honor

On Saturday, June 18, two new plaques were mounted on the Veteran’s Wall of Honor; one for HSW member H.A. Tuck and one for Jerry Alan Skinner, the father of HSW member Randy Skinner. These are the first two plaques of the MAAF museum era and we are proud to add them to the more than 1,000 plaques already on display.

If you, or someone you know has a friend or loved one to honor, please contact Greg Gutting (ggutting@earthlink.net) for more information about a plaque.

Henry A. Tuck, Jr. and Jerry Alan Skinner, our two newest honorees.

Hobbs Fly-In a Success

On Saturday, June 18, eight HSW aircraft went wheels up at about 0830 hrs for a trip to Hobbs, NM for a fly-in (a show off for us).  There were quite a few aircraft at the fly-in and a lot of spectators.  Another opportunity for the HSW to strut our stuff and spread the word about our wing and our mission.  Thanks to all who participated.
