Jun 6, 2019 (D-Day) – 26 attended the UFO and Wright Brothers Master Pilot meeting at the Salem, OR airport (SLE) terminal building.
Many flew in and many drove to the meeting, which was organized by Bert Zimmerly, the local UFO area rep. His wife Jean Anne also helped Bill Webber tally attendance and hand out name tags for this event.
We were treated to a presentation from Marcie and Robin Reid who shared their many years of history in aviation going back to Robin’s mother, Amelia Reid. She owned and operated the Reid-Hillview Airport in San Jose, California, and instructed and flew over 55,000 hours. Wow, what a lady and family. Marcie celebrated this special day (D-Day) by dressing up in an authentic D-Day uniform. The lunch was catered by the airport restaurant and there were lots of great stories shared as the microphone was passed around.
