Movie Night at the ARC - The Hunters
Starring:Robert Mitchum, Robert Wagner, May Britt
In 1952, as the Korean War rages on, American officers land in Kyoto.
Among them are Major Ceve Saville, assigned to a fighter squadron, and
Lieutenant Carl Abbott. The latter neglects his charming wife Kristina,
who is sinking into bitterness. In Korea, Saville meets again Colonel Dutch
Imil, a former brother in arms as well as other friends.
Back in Japan Saville falls in love
with forsaken Kristina, which arouses Abbott's jealousy. The two men
turn into implacable rivals. But during a mission against Chinese Migs,
Abbott is hurt and Saville decides to rescue him...
The flying scenes were principally filmed over the southwest United States in the vicinity of Luke Air Force Base and
Williams Air Force Base. Operational F-86 Sabre fighters, which were still front line aircraft at the time, were used in the aerial
sequences. The crash footage of an F-100 Super Sabre was used in one scene to represent the attempted landing of an F-86.
USAF F-84F Thunderstreak fighters were painted with Communist Bloc paint schemes and insignia to portray enemy MiG-15s.
A C-130A Hercules was used as an aerial photography platform. Palm Beach AFB, Florida was used during the production as
the main location where aircraft used in the film were parked and maintained. Running Time: 108 Minutes

Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge -

We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
Presented by the AIAA and St. Louis Space Frontier
St. Louis played a vital role in making space travel possible. Join us to see the memorabilia and hear the recollections of those innovators behind the technology leaps that took us to the Moon and beyond!
