June Membership Meeting

Do not forget the meeting this Saturday.  Ken White has volunteered to present the history of a model he will be donating to the AMA Museum. See the outline below..….everyone should make an effort to come see the model and hear about the flight.
RegardsTom Johnson

  The Pewter Mule
                                                            by Ken White
The presentation will be about the history and flight of a model called the Pewter Mule, built by NASA engineers in the late 70’s to continue the proof of concept for the space shuttle orbiter.  It is a rocket which carried a 1/40th rc scale model of the space shuttle.  It used 24 D-12 Estes rocket motors.  The flight took place in 1979, 40 years ago.  The rocket was found at an estate sale by me and I recognized it immediately because I was there when it flew.  I acquired the model and have been working the last few weeks getting it accepted by the AMA Museum.  I just got the email from the museum committee that it was accepted.  I plan to bring the model to the meeting to discuss it’s history for those interested.
