Maybe it would be better if you finished your plane then you could come over to keep me out of trouble to finish mine, if I can find it in the dust.

Cute, thank you, I will be glad to see your construction progress when I come back.

Terry, if it will help, I'll run up to your shop and take pictures of me sitting in the CruZer making some airplane noises.

You know I already will do that.

You're welcome to monitor our build on Facebook, but that might just be adding salt to the wound.

Sadly, I don't think it's still around. According to THIS WEBSITE,"There was a private flying club from about 1960 through the mid 1980s. They owned two aircraft, tied down outdoors off the Bucholtz airstrip. Because they used avgas they were forced to dissolve when the Army switched over to turbine-powered aircraft and no longer stocked avgas."

Looking at a 2010-2011 "Welcome to Kwajalein" brochure, there's no mention of the flying club among the list of recreational activities.

Since, I am the surgeon on call, I am imprisoned on Kwajalein for the duration. There are a bunch of other doctors but just one surgeon. That is why it would be nice to have the plane to build. But I can dive around the island and probably take a local sail boat or power boat if I get back quick.
Yes the air taxi exists and one of our nurses, lives up there and commutes.

Hey buddy,

Have you had an opportunity to go to the other islands?  I thought Roi was nice.  Does the army still run an air taxi service?  Snorkel, scuba, fishing, and dodge trident missiles.

Do you think that flying club might still exist? I am bored without building

Hi Dr. Terry,

The photo brings back memories. I did two eighteen month tours on Kwaj (actually Ennylabegan, a.k.a. Carlos) in the late sixties and early seventies as a telemetry maintenance and operations tech in support of the Safeguard ABM program. We had a flying club with a Cessna 150 and a Beech Musketeer at the time, and a fleet of Cal 20 sailboats we could check out for sailing around the atoll.

I had more hair back then and it was a few shades darker,

-Stan
