JSCRCC has somewhat of a unique situation in that their field is located within the fence line of JSC and to reach the field/event pilots and spectators have to pre-register enough in advance to allow security time to clear them. Their security folks did a great job in hassle free handling of the security checks and it did not appear to be any real burden or restriction on attendance. The security folks were very helpful and courteous at the entrance gate. In addition to the registered pilots many visitors/spectators were in attendance. Weather for the event was perfect with wind right down the runway. As with all events volunteers are critical and JSCRCC’s crew did a great job.
There were many, many different type military aircraft from small electrics to large scale B-17’s and B-24. Pilots came from as far away as Fort Worth and Austin.
Near lunch time I had the honor to present a District VIII Service Award to Dave Hoffman. Dave has been a member of JSCRCC for 50 years and was the club Treasurer for almost the same 50 years. That is a “tough act to follow” – Congratulations Dave!
Thanks to all of the pilots and club volunteers that made this a very successful and enjoyable event…I am sure everyone enjoyed themselves….I know I did.
