From the July Meeting
Several members of Operation Liftoff visited with a cornucopia of TWA and Ozark Airlines memorabilia. Spokeswoman Katy Kruze explained that Operation Liftoff’s mission is, “to provide hope for courageous and frightened children with air transportation for a treatment trip.” She went on from there to illustrate the many and varied good works which Operation Liftoff performs. Perhaps most amazing, Operation Liftoff runs with just two paid employees, assuring that virtually every dollar donated actually helps children in need.
Operation Liftoff is hosting a Vegas Night on November 8. Contact Katy at her office, (314) 613-7705, for details.
The Wednesday, August 13, 2008 meeting will be at The Columns. Our speaker will be George Andre, who flew the SR-71, flew for TWA, flew for Wings of Hope, flew Zipper at Reno, and recently received an FAA safety award for 50 years of flying without an accident.
