Excellent Slide Show at the January 9th Atlanta REPA Luncheon!!!

Folks….
 
We are having a special treat at the January 9th Atlanta REPA Luncheon…
 
Mr. Jim Towne, son of Eastern Captain Paul Towne, will present a Slide Show of about 30 Slides, the first part regarding his dad’s 50 missions in a B-17G during WWII…
 
Following that he will give us (again via Slides) an extensive presentation of what Captain Towne and his crew did when, on February 9, 1974, they lost a second engine, just at lift off, on a Two Engine L-1011 Ferry flight out of Mexico City, the aircraft being Tail Number 318, sometimes known as the Ghost Ship!
 
Jim has asked me to assist him in this presentation and after about two weeks of practice we believe that this show will be of great interest to all…
 
We also will be collecting 2018 REPA Dues at the Luncheon, preferably by check… Remember that the Dues are $40.00 for Regular Members and $35.00 for Affiliates…
 
As usual we will be meeting at the Piccadilly Cafeteria located at 2449 Godby Road, College Park, GA 30349, just east of Old National Highway, just south of I-285…
 
We start arriving at 11:00 AM when they open and the program starts about noon…
 
Hope to see you there!
