Program Description

"The 'Hole in the Wall' Gang"

By David Orr

Many of our canard aircraft were 'birthed' in the hangers at Clover field in the mid-1980's. Davide Orr built his Long EZ there and will take us down memory lane reliving the experience in narratives and photos.

"Up, Up & Away"

What's new in Berkuts? Dave Ronnenberg & Dan Robinson [KSMO] are developing a new, lightweight, aerobatic Berkut. They will share the genesis of the idea and the progress todate. Hear their expectations and their methods to achieve them.
