I AM AN EAA MEMBER AND have been attending the online webinars
on a variety of subjects. All of them have been very informative and
provided great practical information for plane builders and owners.
Keep it up! These webinars are a fine way to allow remote members
to stay in touch with the latest technology and current situations.

IN OUR ARTICLE ABOUT THE EAA Blériot, we neglected to include
Konrad Werner’s name on the list of volunteers who assisted with its
construction. Also, we apologize to John Whitelam and Russ Prina
for spelling their names incorrectly. In addition, we neglected to
mention that during the early planning stages of the Blériot project,
Gary Karner of Glenview, Illinois, shared a number of significant
drawings that provided technical data for the project. Jim Pinkerton
of Denver, Colorado, also contributed drawings, and EAA and
Pinkerton traded various parts to move their respective Blériot
Airport Car of the Month
TOUCHING DOWN AT CINDY GUNTLY MEMORIAL AIRPORT (62C) is
like landing in a place time forgot. The public-use field has two
turf runways 12 nautical miles southwest of Milwaukee’s General
Mitchell International Airport. There are two rows of aircraft
parked at the north end; all but a few had flat tires and tall grass
and weeds growing
up and around
them. Next to a barn
that looked as if a
good wind could
blow it over were
rusted tractors and
a truck with a plow.
my surprise when
airport owner Tom Guntly pulled up next to my Cherokee Arrow
in a 1994 Jaguar XJ6! I had called ahead asking if there was a
courtesy car, but didn’t expect door-to-door service or a luxury
automobile. “The windshield wipers don’t work, but everything
else is fine,” he said.
Getting in, I sank into the leather seat like an old couch in
someone’s basement. The odometer read 126,588 miles, but the
car drove well—with one exception: When you brake it pulls to
the left, but with a little right rudder you’ll be fine.
