>American Aviation Historical Society Meeting Phoenix Wing

AeroGuard Flight training Academy at Deer Valley Airport, 530 W. Deer Valley Road, Phoenix. AeroGuard is located on the Northeast corner of 7th Ave. & Deer Valley Rd.

This month’s speaker(s) will be, Bob Mosley and his brother, Evan Mosley, of Mosley Aviation. The Mosley family ran the business from the 1960‘s to current, being an Icon of Arizona aviation lore. Mosley field was always the home of a great collection of very unique aircraft, like one of their many home airports, especially like their first field located at, 91st Ave between Camelback and Indian Sch. Rd. This was where famous warbird aircraft dealer Bob Bean stored a fleet of F4U-4 Corsair aircraft. And, with many NA B-25 and Douglas B-26 bombers, Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat, and a host of other rare WWII and later aircraft. Plus they are the owners of the rare DC-7 aircraft stored at Goodyear airport, that has a very interesting story ... Along with their various crop duster and helicopters … like the unique Kaman HH-43 Huskie’ and Piasecki CH-21 Shawnee’ they utilized in dusting and commercial lift, and logging work they did . . And, DID they do! ..., as Bob has amassed the almost unheard of total of over 46,000+ flight hours! … and, his brother Evan is close behind! … And with all that flying time doing the kind of work they did … adventures abound with amazing tales … some hilarious and some just epic of dynamic belief! This is going to be one presentation you don’t want to miss!

 

 

>ERAU PRESCOTT AVIATION HISTORY PROGRAMS: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 Herb Zinn has been rescheduled to present his program: “The Doolittle Raid”

 

Herb Zinn’s first and true passion is military history. He has written various articles on topics of interest relating to WW II, and has been a visiting lecturer at Scottsdale Community College and Chandler-Gilbert Community College on topics related to military history and the role of military aviation in modern-day combat. The Doolittle Raid. At a desperate moment in time, Americas sagging morale was suddenly boosted by the bravery of 80 men who did the seemingly impossible on a mission that changed the course of the war in the Pacific in 1942. As always, the presentation will be at the DLC Auditorium at 7:00pm. The Davis Learning Center Auditorium (Bldg. 20) is easy to find. Take the main entrance to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (opposite Heritage Park Zoo), make the first right off the traffic circle, go less than ¼ mile and just past the library is the DLC, on your left with lots of parking. The meetings are free and open to everyone, so bring a friend. See you there!

Hello Companions, Shipmates, Veterans, and the public!


TUESDAY, MARCH 27TH, 2018 - our regular meeting day (4th Tuesday of the month)  Commemorating National Women's History Month

 

"The Mercury Thirteen" presented by Dr. Valerie Adams, Professor, Arizona State University 

 

The efforts of the Mercury 13 in the 1960s to become the first American women in space is a little-known story. Unfortunately, with their program derailed by Vice President Johnson, the Soviets laid claim to putting the first woman in space in 1963. The U.S. would not do so until Sally Ride flew into space in 1983. In honor of Women’s History Month, historian Valerie Adams will retell the story of these thirteen remarkable women, chronicling their days as accomplished pilots, the astronaut program they participated in, and their achievements after the program folded.  

Meeting details:

Yes, a big thank you to Craig and Rasa for a well done conference and for letting us all invade your home. It was wonderful to meet everyone and spend time with you.
And the bomb range sites were all thrillers!

Cheers to the Fullers.
