May 13, 2015 – Spring finally sprung in the Northeast. UFO members thawed themselves out and took full advantage of it. After a one day postponement due to winds, 17 planes converged on the Danbury, CT airport for some good ‘ole fashioned UFO camaraderie. The focus on the ramp fell on a meticulously restored Fairchild 24W flown in by UFO-In-Waiting airline Captain Sean Neal.
Once greetings were exchanged and all the aircraft examined the group retired to a local eatery. A three course lunch was capped with an engaging presentation by Aviation Hall of Famer and past NBAA past President Jack Olcott.
A local TV network covered the event magnificently. See Members in the News for a recording of the video. “Best ever” was the comment most often heard on the way back to the airport.
