I stopped by my old Aeroclub at Tipton Airfield near Ft. Meade today to visit the old gang. I got my PPL here many years ago. It was great to see some of the guys that were around while I flew there, but I was sad to see an old friend–the Cessna T-41 that I soloed in–sitting in a hangar after being parted out. Apparently it was smacked hard in a vicious windstorm that hit the airport a couple of years back. The tail assembly was banged up pretty good, to the point that the tail boom was misaligned so much that it was uneconomical to repair.
