Greetings Big Easy Wing Members,
It is with profound pride and joy that I announce that The Big Easy Wing has a permanent home. Our new hangar is located at Lakefront Airport (KNEW), on the Northeast Side next to the control tower. We are having our next general membership meeting at the hangar on March 31, Saturday morning at 10:00 am. Wear old clothes, bring some cleaning supplies and a chair. We will meet, tour the facility and commence cleaning. Keep in mind that this hangar has not been used in years.
There are many folks to thank for this amazing hangar. However, I would like to send a special shout out to the following amazing people for their incredible efforts in securing our new home:
Col. Tom Fierke, U.S. Army retired and commissioner on the Levee board non flood asset committee.
Wilma Heaton – Chairperson of that Board
Jesse Noel, Lakefront Airport Director
Chanse Watson, Assistant Director, KNEW
Gerald Metzger, Attorney for the Board
And especially, I would like to thank our own Executive Officer, Erin Seidemann, for all of her hard work and dedication in taking the lead in this process. Great job Erin.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday, March 31 at our new address.
Your Unit Leader, Col. David Capo
