Recently, a letter arrived in our website's inbox. We're quoting it here verbatim, with links added as appropriate:

Ms. L.A.T. Writes:

Good Morning Mr. Matthews, Mr. Jones, Mr. Fish and Mr. Fomichev,

I would just like to say a quick word of thanks! As a youth services librarian and educator, I've been running a fun aviation history and aircraft education class for 10-14 year olds online during these challenging times of remote learning and social distancing, and thought you all might enjoy hearing that we've been able to get some great use out of your Chapter's aviation resource links list. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

I hope you don't mind, one of our youngest, Amelia has also asked me if I could share a piece that she and her father found together which initially sparked her interest in aviation history, The Cars, Tanks and Airplanes of World War II, which includes a great breakdown on the aerial warfare advancements of the time. I've included it below if you'd like to review!

We noticed you don't have this one listed, but Amelia was actually the one to bring up that this could be something you might like to include for others who may also have an interest in learning more during their down time, like our group!

If you find you are able to use this one, would you please let me know? We're meeting Monday virtually, and I would absolutely love to surprise Amelia and the group if you're able to do so - I'm hoping to keep spirits up in light of the past year's events, and I think it would make her proud to see she was able to pay it forward and maybe even show her mother her contribution if it ends up being included!

Thanks again for all your help here,


Thanks very much for warm words, Ms. T; and happy to oblige!
