Flying Fortress 5K Certificate of Appreciation

The Coastal Amateur Radio Society received a very nice certificate of appreciation from the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum for our assistance during the 1st Annual "Flying Fortress 5K" run back in November. 

We are currently helping to restore the radio compartment of the B-17 "City of Savannah" and really having a great time with it.  What an honor for our club to be part of this project.  We were very happy to assist with the 5K run by positioning radio operators along the race route to relay information back to the start/finish line. 

Note that this certificate includes an authentic piece of fabric from the B-17 horizontal stabilizer.
