Long Island Aviation

Long Island Aviation

I typed four words in YouTube, just 4 words, and some little treasures popped up. The words? “Long Island Aviation Club”. Thank you to David Schlick who discovered this first video and prompted my search. I got a kick out of the 1940’s lighthearted commentary nearly as much as the short but sweet video. My favorite, “the controls allow instant correction on the part of the ... Read More »
