We screen-captured Steve Riethof (who is also an EAA Chapter 501 member) doing his bit for the video, and he now appears on both our website and our downloadable April 2021 calendar page. When asked about the light he was holding Steve replied... "Yep, this is the three-light gun (red, green, white) for signaling; although seldom needed now, they are still available in towers and pilots must know the code meanings. Way back, when there were single unreliable radios ("coffee grinders", etc. ) I was "shot down" three times. One was at TEB when I was at the old Paterson Beacon and I saw the light from ten miles away!"

On Saturday, February 20, Charlie Derk put the word out for a Sunday Lunch Fly-Out to Westfield, Massachusetts' Westfield-Barnes Airport (KBAF, home of F-15s of the 104th Fighter Wing of the Mass. ANG).
Our March calendar photo of Charlie and his RV-10 with the ice and snow-covered Hudson River and the Catskills in the distance, was taken by Christopher Lee, flying his MGJ-based Mooney. On a rare clear day in February, they were on the way northeast from Orange County to Westfield.

Back on December 8th, Eric Sampson flew the last leg of a Pilots & Paws rescue that originated in Tennessee. "Faye", an adult coon dog mix, rode with Eric abaord his Cherokee from Pittsburgh to Teterboro Airport where she was turned over to a foster family from Englewood for adaption, maybe before Christmas. Eric took our February calendar picture while on long final to TEB's Runway 6. That's Route 17 in the foreground.

A month ago, on December 12, Charlie Derk flew a Pilots & Paws mission from Tappahannock, Virginia to Republic, Farmingdale, NY, Airport. The January calendar photo was taken upon arrival at Farmingdale when pups were turned over to volunteers who ready them for delivery to new homes. When Charlie posted the photo on Facebook he commented...
"So how many rescue puppies fit in a Vans RV-10?
At least 16... 8 Rottweilers, 7 Lab/Pit mixes, and a little runt."
