Gas & Steam Engine Show

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

It was a brisk morning with temperatures in the 50s.  Three cars and one motorcycle (yours truly on the motorcycle) met at the cruise in location to parade over to the Agricultural History Farm Park for the 14th Annual Gas & Steam Engine Show.

 Here is the parade video shot by Pat on the way to the show.

There were numerous engines on display with most of them running.  Some were steam powered while others were gas or diesel powered.  Here is some video of some of the engines running.

There were several steam powered tractors that were parading around.  And Chuck was enthused with the Model A Fords.

January 20, 1953: First licensed pilot to become President , Dwight D Eisenhower. He soloed in 1937 while serving with Gen Douglas MacArthur in the Philippines and received his pilot's license (#93528) in July 1939. Eisenhower was also the first to have a presidential helicopter, in 1957. First President as a combat pilot was George H Bush, who flew combat missions in a USN Grumman TBF during WW2. Neither, however, pursued a career in aviation. Son, George W Bush, was first President qualified as jet pilot (Texas ANG).
