WrapUp ---October Saturday October 9 and Sunday October 10 - Wings Over Houston Airshow.

This year's Wings Over Houston Airshow was a great success. The weather was good and a full flight performance was on view Saturday and Sunday. Sunday show was restricted to the "low show", due to overcast skies and strong winds, but otherwise things went as schedule. We had a great number of individuals and families drop by our booth to talk aviation and aircraft building. Big thanks to Andy Foster, Ernie Butcher, Dave Wilson and the students from Clear Springs High School  who made their aircraft available for display. Also, thanks to our volunteers who greeted and answered our visitor's questions.
