This is: “Deweese, a Service Story”.

Max was one of the first American soldiers to engage the Japanese in an offensive military operation. One of the many missions during his service critical to the early war effort was the mission to see that the Japanese were not successful in building an airport at Guadalcanal.

His service along with countless other veterans were crucial to the eventual success of the allied forces in turning the tide in the Pacific war effort which ultimately lead to the surrender of Japan.

Program for October 19th HAFFA Meeting —> All You Wanted to Know About Vintage Twin Pushers . . .

YIKES !!!!! 🙂 This month’s HAFFA Meeting is RAPIDLY CREEPING UP ON US! (Tuesday Oct. 19th — 6:00 to 8:00 pm).

This month we’ll delve into the sometimes mystifying realm of TWIN PUSHER MODEL AIRPLANES popular in the 20s and 30s.

Believe it or not these quirky machines still hold a special place in the hearts of a seemingly glowingly smaller but massively dedicated group of Aeromodelers! To make and fly one gives you a lifetime membership into this ELITE CLUB. 🙂

At the meeting we will have some example TPs for you to examine, some short videos of them in flight, and questions and answers from a long time experienced TP maker and flyer, MIKE BASTA, winner of the Twin Pusher Mass Launches at the 2018 and 2019 Marion Contests.

Our club, HAFFA, has a rich history encompassing these aircraft and it’s worth learning about and supporting their future! 😉 If you haven’t already seen our web page about this subject please check out our History of HAFFA Part 1.

SEE YOU TUESDAY OCTOBER 19TH
AT 6:00 PM — DON’T MISS THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY !!!!!!!
