Carl Keller Field, Port Clinton, was the site of the Sept.16 meeting of the All-Ohio chapter of the Ninety Nines, association of women pilots. 

Pilots and spouses came to Port Clinton airport for the19th year that they have met in conjunction with the annual Gypsum reunion.

 Guest speaker was Attorney Tom Corogin of Catawba Island, sailing adventurer and author of the book “Agape”. Corogin told of his sailing trips to countries such as Ecuador and Panama and around South America. Of particular interest was Corogin’s video of being lifted to a helicopter as he was being transferred from a Japanese freighter to a Chilean rescue ship below South America after his sailboat was unable to be steered.

Following the business meeting, some of the pilots joined the Gypsum reunion and several others ate at the Tin Goose Diner at the Aviation Museum.  Ed Patrick of the museum led a tour of the ongoing restoration of the Tin Goose [Ford Tri Motor] being done by the local Experimental Aviation Association [EAA].
