05/27/12 Rotorheads,

Some happenings at the museum over the past few weeks:

Chad Slattery (photog & writer for Smithsonian Air & Space mag) shooting the DP-1 for an article for the Smithsonian magazine. He said that it would appear sometime within the next year. I'll let everyone know. Thanks to Dale St.C., Joel, Ron and Chip for their support of the shoot and to Howard for interview information. You can check out Chad's work at http://www.chadslattery.com .

4 weeks ago, Italian aviation writer & photographer, Luigino Caliaro, did a photo shoot of the H-21 as it was going to the Chino air show. He is doing a book on cold war era aircraft that are still flying. We'll let everyone know when it comes out. Thanks to Dale Crum, Mark, Howard, Joel, P-Ten and Chip for help with the shoot. You can see Luigino's work at www.aerophoto.it .

The conference room, theater (except for seats) and stairs are all finished and the bottom floor lounge partially finished. Come out and check it out. Thanks and see you at the hangar.
