With the change in the weather, flying season ends and meeting season begins. Cascade Warbirds will hold its first meeting of the winter at the Museum of Flight in Seattle on Saturday, October 14. According to Squadron Commander Ron Morrell the meeting will begin “precisely at 10 a.m., more or less”. Held in the North View Lounge the meeting’s agenda will feature a recap of the Squadron’s extensive air show and flying activities this past summer; and a presentation by Kent Johnson, Naval Aviator, retired airline Captain, and CWB Board Member. Johnson flew most of the noted Navy attack aircraft during the Viet Nam era. Anyone with an interest in historic military aircraft is welcome and there is no admission charge to attend.
