One of the Scouts in attendance wanted to set in the recently completed restoration of the EAA Bi Plane. He wanted to see what it would feel like to set in and move the controls of the airplane with his new knowledge of aircraft and their controls.

Several EAA Chapter 1218 members were in attendance today for the dedication of the Jenny Plaque at the Springfield-Branson National Airport. The Jenny was built by Clint and Marge Allen with the help from many Chapter 1218 members.

Our Fly In/Camp Out was a success! The weather cooperated and we had several airplanes fly in as well as some planes from the field who flew. There were several people who either camped under their wing, or brought tents and campers. Friday night before the band played, James Ennis gave some of the band members their first airplane ride in his Cessna 172.
More pictures from the event are located in the Gallery Section of this website. http://www.1218.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/
Thanks to all of our donors and helpers who made this a success.
