AOPA Fly-In Attracts 500 Aircraft from AVwebFlash Current Issue
Despite a bit of morning fog and the forecast of a sweltering early-summer day, AOPA hosted a robust turnout for their annual fly-in and open house in Frederick, Md., on Saturday. By mid-afternoon, temperatures were in the 90s, with a heat index hovering near 100 degrees. But with a cool breeze, plenty of shady tents, and an air-conditioned headquarters to escape to, the heat drew few complaints -- in fact, most were happy that at least it wasn't raining, the all-too-usual open-house weather. By day's end, over 500 aircraft had visited Frederick, including the 40 on display, and AOPA spokesman Chris Dancy estimated the day's crowd at about 5,000.

Quilts honor the WASP from You Fly, Girl by Cathy Gale
(First off...this blog hasn't been updated in a few issues have held me back. However, hopefully from now on I'll be making daily updates again.)
Just added a new interview to Winged Victory, aka You Fly, Girl!
It's an interview with Judy Wolff, a woman who, first with the help of her daughter (for the daughter's Girl Scout project) and now on her own, is making quilts honoring each of the WASP classes, and the 39 WASP who died serving their country.
Two of the quilts are completed and donated to the WASP musuem, as will be each subsequent quilt.
