January 6 – Cessna Citation V & X

Wednesday, January 6 — In at 8:40 after dropping off the JTW book file at the printer. Calm, no birds on the ramp. Processed pictures all morning. Attended a news conference at Levi Ray & Shoup about their donation of $850,000 to Lincoln Land Community College’s aviation program, met some nice people. Encountered Lee Hubbard, whose father was a Tuskegee airman and had a long career in the USAF; later flew RC-121s. We came back to the museum and toured the entire place, then back to LLCC where Lee introduced me to the director of the aviation program and some others, had a nice visit. Back to AKM about 3:30. Processed pictures until 6:35 when the first model club member arrived. Spent the evening with them and went home about 9:20.

Pictures are of Lee during his tour of AKM. He’s going to try to recruit some volunteer help for AKM —  exactly the kind of help needed here: people who want to L E A R N — plus two Citation Xs and a V owned and flown by Levi, Ray and Shoup and my high school classmate senior year, Dick Levi during the news conference.
