Aviation Club Members, circa 1947

Carl Brandt joined the Aviation Club as photographer and took numerous photos for use in the school newspaper.    His pilots were usually World War ll vets who had flown bomber or fighter aircraft over Germany.

“Several of us would rent aircraft early on a Sunday mornings — and then fly for about half an hour to another airport that had a restaurant.  After a good breakfast, we would fly back to the original airport. ”
