Member Bill Bell gave the presentation and five local pilots opened up their airplanes to show details of the fuel systems, electrical and other components that are important for First Responders to know about.



A big thank you to the Brodhead Fire Department crews for coming out and letting us show you a few things about the aircraft we fly and the activities going on out here.  Thanks also to our pilots and presenters, Mike Williams (J-3 Cub), Bob Buzzell (Stinson 108), Ben Johnson (Cessna 172), Bill Liimatainen (Fairchild 24), Jeff Fink (RV-8), Pat Weeden, Mike Weeden and Bill Bell.
