January Meeting Photos

On 9 January 2020, we held our monthly meeting at the Dobson's Restaurant at the Dobson Ranch Golf Course in Mesa, Arizona.  Our guest speaker was Flight 82 member, Lt Col Diedrichs.  He gave a very informative and entertaining talk about some of his military and civilian experiences, including his work on accident investigations.  We especially enjoyed hearing about Ron's "hairy" flights supporting fighters during the Vietnam War.  Our members and guests thoroughly enjoyed Lt Col Diedrichs' outstanding presentation!
