It was great day to fly! We flew 45 Young Eagles from Columbia Airport on Saturday, April 23, 2016. There were 9 pilots volunteering their time, airplanes and fuel for the flights: Allen Craig, Mike Gustafson, Dan Hess, Carl Hopkins, Bob Hornauer, Dale Mueller, Erik Segerstrom, Bill Sommers and Jim Thomas.
It also took the help of 11 ground crew working ramp, safety, photography, and support: Ed & Janet Gregory, Michelle Hess, Peter Kendall, Leon Liebster, Andy Mankus, Joe Riley, Dennis Smith, Diana & Ed Sunday, and David Taylor.
Special thanks to Columbia Airport and Bald Eagle Aviation for their support as well.
