April Chapter Meeting – Tuesday, April 14th at 7:00pm

The tail engine exploded in mid-flight, sending shrapnel through the tail and shredding the hydraulic and back-up hydraulic lines that control the plane.  He’ll walk us through his experience and what he learned from the accident.

This is a very unique opportunity to hear about a crash from the passenger’s perspective.  Join us at Lewis University in Romeoville on Tuesday, April 14th at 7pm in Harold E. White Aviation Center Room 126.  Click here for directions to campus and here for a campus map.
