December Meeting Photos

On 12 December 2019, we held our annual Christmas meeting with spouses/guests at the Dobson's Restaurant at the Dobson Ranch Golf Course in Mesa, Arizona.  Our guest speaker was Linda Crook, a Flight 82 member and hereditary Daedalian, following her father’s, mother’s, and grandfather’s memberships because her great grandfather was founding member #199.  She discussed her military family, including her great grandfather, Maj John Reynolds, who was the squadron commander of an American volunteer unit flying French aircraft during WW I.

The Salmson 2.A2:  The Salmson 2, (given the military designation Salmson 2.A2) wasFrench biplane reconnaissance aircraft made by Salmson.  It was developed to a 1916 requirement.  Along with the Breguet 14, it was the main reconnaissance aircraft in use with the French army and the American Expeditionary Force's aviation units in 1918. At the end of the First World War, one-third of French reconnaissance aircraft were Salmson 2s.  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salmson_2).
