Missouri Aviation Historical Society Meeting Features Members' Experiences in the Civil Air Patrol

By Carmelo Turdo
Missouri Aviation Historical Society

The Missouri Aviation Historical Society is a group of folks with a love of aircraft, and we are striving to record and document the rich aviation history that has been a part of the great state of Missouri for the past century. From Benoist to Zenith, the aviation industry in the "Show Me" state has always been at the forefront of technology, and has produced some of the world’s best known aircraft. Famous pilots, from Jimmy Doolittle, to Slim Lindbergh, all called Missouri home for a portion of their lives, and made significant contributions to the advancement of aviation. We meet monthly in Clayton, MO, at 190 Carondelet Plaza, Suite 600, St. Louis, MO 63105.

Our next gathering will be on Thur, Feb 16th at 7 PM. This month’s presentation, will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Civil Air Patrol, created on Dec 01, 1941, only six days, prior to the savage attack on Pearl Harbor. MOAHS member Larry Corbin, will recount the history of this outstanding organization, with the help of member Carmelo Turdo, who will give an overview of his time in the CAP, as a cadet. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served. For directions, please see the accompanying page, and if you have any questions, please contact Dan O’Hara at 573-529-2539 or email Hope to see you there!
