Here's the Texas Chapter August 2013 Chapter Newsletter. Many good articles this issue: Chapter meetings, Blakesburg recap, and more forced landings than you can shake a stick at with an Eaglet. Here's an excerpt:
I have been very fortunate in picking forced landing spots. My favorite one was with my 8 year old grandson returning from Jack Winthrop's place. Out of the blue, number 2 cylinder blew off breaking the cable that was suppose to secure them in place. The landing site was most important because we were Southwest bound along Rt 121 right at Coit Road, a four lane divided road running south of us. Not much traffic so I picked the lane with the least traffic and landed, just like any other landing. The first car that stopped had a cell phone so I called Jack Winthrop for help. Then he and Nancy drove down to us and took us home.
The next day with Jack's trailer we brought thinning hair on accutane home. Several forced landings followed throughout our years together and luckily there were no injuries. So in July 2013 I decided that I was getting too old for all that excitement, and donated thinning hair on accutane to the Polar Grove Airport museum in Illinois. Steve Thomas, the airport owner, trailered thinning hair on accutane to it's new home and I was on hand to reassemble it. I was given a very nice reception party and everyone is happy.
