Young Eagles Take Flight at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
EAA Chapter 64 and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted students and teachers from this week's Ranken Technical College Adventure Academy and local youth Thursday morning at St. Louis Downtown Airport. Fourteen students and one staff member were given Young Eagle/Eagle Flights and toured the museum, getting a first-hand look at aircraft design evolution and flying around the St. Louis metropolitan area. Pilots for the Young Eagle Flights, shown below, were John Schaefer, C305A/O-1 Bird Dog; Bob McDaniel, Young Eagles Coordinator, C172 Skyhawk; and Tom Murrell, AA-1B Yankee.
