The meeting adjourned at 10:15 for the tour of Twin Otter conducted by Tate Bernier, pilot, and Al Stancato, long-time employee.

Interesting tidbits from the tour were the size of the planes and their slow speed, which makes them ideal for scientific research. The pilot said he had ferried one to Australia and it was a very long flight!

Following the tour, about 16 members adjourned to the Village Inn on Horizon Drive for food and stories.
