A large crowd was on hand to hear Guest Speaker Jim Towne (son of Eastern Captain Paul Towne) deliver an excellent 30 minute A/V show on his dad’s wartime experience as a B-17G PIC…
 
And in later life perform an impossible feat by safely landing an Eastern 1011 that lost a second engine on a Two Engine Ferry take-off at Mexico City…. This in February 1964…
 
Afterwards we had a nice session of comments and such about what happened in Mexico City…
 
As Guests we had Marie Towne, Jim’s wife and Carrie Holder, my wife…
 
We did have time for the Door Prize Drawings which result in;
