to check out the action as planes were buzzing through the air. Aircraft of all sizes and shapes were on hand for the boys to view and ask questions about. The club members took turns explaining their aircraft to the boys and giving a flight demonstration. Hands on experience was also available through a special computerized flight simulator provided by the club. To end the evening, the boys were presented with their own small glider plane to assemble and fly, by the club.
Pack 3285 would like to thank the Wolverine Skyhawks for a great night of flight!
