LONDONDERRY – On Sat., May 11, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire will host The New Hampshire Aviation Historical Society’s vice-president, Bob Hough, and his presentation titled, “Flying the Idaho Back Country.”
Bob’s high-definition video of the adventurous tour of remote airstrips nestled in the beautiful mountainous country of this great western state is nothing short of breath-taking. You’ll feel as though you’re in the cockpit with him thanks to a high-def. camera mounted on the wing of the airplane. Bob and his nephew show landings and take-offs to and from places that most pilots wouldn’t even consider capable of supporting flight operations for kites, much less powered aircraft. But yet, here they are!
Bob’s humorous and informative narration of their trip lets the audience understand the true nature of each of these tiny aerodromes and the video offers what is literally a bird’s-eye-view of places only accessible by small aircraft or overland by foot. By airplane the trips are short and scenic – by foot it would take months to cover the same ground.
Bob’s presentation will begin at 11:00 a.m., on Sat., May 11, in the Devino Classroom of the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, 27 Navigator Road, Londonderry. Seating is limited and is included in the price of admission to the museum.
This is one presentation you won’t want to miss!
