Note: The featured image above was scanned from a photo, circa 1993, that Mike Basta (our president) provided me for past photos of the club. You can see clearly here that Mike Basta’s father, Matt, was passionate about his hobby because if he took the time to build the beautiful models displayed here, he believed you certainly needed a proper home to house them in. I find it quite remarkable that the Matt Basta Air Service Hanger has a proper wind sock showing the wind was blowing that day. Clearly the love of the hobby was passed down to his son.
