Just a small note, the ghosts have been very active in January. At the Museum Board Meeting on last Tuesday, they were doing a lot of hammering and etc. above our heads at the meeting. Numerous people heard the commotions. At a recent Ghost tour a lady believes she has a picture of one of the ladies sitting in a chair in the English Room upstairs. March 31st, while working on the web page, Cigar Smoke was smelled in the gift shop and small hallway out of the gift shop. It ceased after I told them there wasn't suppose to be smoking in here. You just never know when or what they are going to do next. They love to tease.
Call the Museum, 812.752.1050 to make your reservations for an interesting tour of your Museum.

HELD ANNUALLY IN SEPTEMBER...
ANNUAL FLY-IN, RADIO CONTROLLED PLANE SHOW
Scottsburg Airport is the site of some pretty exciting events! In 2004 it hosted the 8th US National Microlight Championships which was filmed for National Geographic. This September, it will host their annual "Fly-In", where normally more than 75 planes fly in for the day. Planes normally include Ultra Lights, Experimental, and Home Built Planes as well as some incredible WWII vintage planes. You will have a chance to inspect the planes and talk with the pilots.
For those wanting to take a ride in an Ultralight, this is your chance! Bring a lawn chair, and spend the day on Saturday watching planes come and go. But wait....stay at one of the lodging facilities in Scott County (tell them you came for the Fly-In and get a discount)...then come back the next day to watch the radio controlled model planes. (Actually some of the radio controlled planes will do some night flying on Saturday night.)
This is serious business for the people who fly these planes. Price tags can go as high as $15,000 for one of these planes! Expect to see over 100 model enthusiasts fly their planes, participate in demo flights, and share their knowledge. In addition to planes, there are also helicopters, and radio controlled cars. Factor representatives will be available for those interested, and several seminars are planned. Enthusiasts will come to this event from over 6 states!
For information about the Fly-In call 812-752-6631. For information on Radio Controlled Planes call 812-752-9235.
