Flymall October 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to our October 2016 Newsletter.

The team at the Flymall recently attended a steam engine show at the Maryland Steam Historical Society in Arcadia, Maryland.  If you like to see steam engines at work this is the show to attend.  Click here to see a few pictures from the show.

Here is Harry’s YouTube video that highlights the show.

The week after the steam engine show we were part of the Montgomery County Airpark Open House.  Harry organized a car show with awards for the event.  We had a few of our vintage 3 wheelers on display – Our 1969 Ural with sidecar, our 1975 Lomax Roadster, and our 1920’s Briggs & Stratton Midget Mobile.  The Ural won 2 awards, Lomax 2 awards, and the Midget Mobile won an award.  Click here for some pictures from the event.

We are sad to report some bad news in this post.


Bill Hughes (pictured above), a friend of Pat & Harry Kraemer died in a plane crash on Sept 27 2016.  Bill was one of the friendliest folks you would ever meet. He was always willing to help you, and would stop whatever he was doing to do so.  He will be missed.  Here is a link with information regarding the crash.

Details on Bill’s services are as follows:

Visitation, Friday October 7th, 7pm to 9pm Barber Funeral Home Laytonsville Maryland 301 948 3500

Funeral Service, Saturday October 8th, 11am Wesley Grove United Methodist Church Gaithersburg Maryland  Lunch to immediately follow

The family is suggesting instead of flowers, gifts go to charities Bill might have favored. One would be the Traum’s Fund administered by the Congressional Flying Club. This helps young pilots get into solo school and also helps some get started in their formal training as a pilot. A check to CFC with note to go to Traum’s fund will work. This is just one suggestion. It is also suggested to just do something niice in Bill’s name. Good things happen when we honor our friends.

In addition to the service there will be a group of mostly Cessnas flying in trail leading the missing man formation of RVs. As of this post the plan is to fly over the church at end of service on Saturday at approximately 12 noon. Logistics and details yet to be finalized.

On October 2 2016 we celebrated the Israeli New Year with our friends at the Washington International Flight Academy in true aviator style – in an aircraft maintenance hangar.  See picture below.  Click here for more pictures from the event.

New Year

Pat Kraemer was involved in a bird strike incident at KGAI. She and a student (Uma Vishnubhotla) hit a goose shortly after takeoff at about 300 feet AGL.  Both her and the student were unhurt.  Not the same for the goose.  Pat did a great job staying in control of both the aircraft and the student. She had to continue with her climb out and fly a complete pattern with a big hole in the windscreen.  It was very noisy and windy!   Click here for more pictures.
