TriMotor Pilots reunion held at Liberty Aviation Museum

On Wednesday, March 20, the Tin Goose Chapter 1247 held its regular monthly meeting at Liberty Aviation Museum and invited five former Island Airlines pilots to present a program on their experiences of flying for the airline. It was a spontaneous evening filled with camaraderie, friendship and laughter with some of the old stories and “hangar flying” that abounded. They told of flying with all sorts of freight, including tombstones. “If you could get it in the door, then it would fly,” was the motto. There were also days of weather, but the old Fords still flew. One pilot related that in 10 years of flying, he had only one day of bad weather causing a delay.

Annual walleye migration underway on Maumee and Sandusky rivers

The annual appearance of migrating walleye in the Maumee and Sandusky rivers brings fantastic spring fishing opportunities, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

An annual phenomenon in northwest Ohio occurs each spring when a portion of Lake Erie’s walleye population moves up the Maumee and Sandusky rivers to spawn. Although the fish caught represent a small portion of all Lake Erie walleye, the run brings hundreds of thousands of fish within casting distance of eager shore anglers.
