Open House at Livermore Airport

2nd Lt Adam Kelly CAP
Recruiting Officer
Amelia Earhart Senior Squadron 188
California Wing

SQ 18 Display Booth
On October 6 Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Squadron 188, along with Squadron 18, participated in the Livermore Airport Annual open house.  Squadron 18's Cadets honored the crowd with an excellent Presentation of the Colors during the National Anthem.  Both Squadron 188 and 18 set up a recruiting booth to help drive interest in the Civil Air Patrol.  CAP Capt Yudis Coreas of Squadron 10 flew in their Cessna 182 G1000 equipped search aircraft for display.  Visitors were able to sit in the cockpit and were enthralled by the G 1000 displays and capability of the CAP aircraft; meanwhile the children loved its video game like appearance.

Spartan Executive
The open house included static displays of antique aircraft and warbirds. There were aerobatic performances by aerobatic pilots Jacquie Warda, Rich Perkins, Vicky Benzing, and Dr. D’s Old-Time Aerobatics wooed the crowd.  It was a wonderful event and Squadron 188 thanks Squadrons 10, 18, the City of Livermore and the airport staff for such a great event.
