How many of you know that EAA recently had a birthday? I learned this from the Vintage Aircraft Association’s February newsletter, which I just received. From the newsletter, “…This evening, January 26, 2015 is the 62nd anniversary/birthday of EAA. From a coal bin basement first meeting on January 26, 1953 to 185,000- plus members, the magnificent EAA Aviation Center with its staggering collection of historic airplanes, to world-wide acclaim as the finest, largest, most influential sport/general aviation organization in history is an amazing accomplishment!”
A big thank you to the late Mr. Paul Poberezny, who had the vision for this, along with his wife Audrey, and all of the countless volunteers who have worked so hard over the years to make this happen!
