Who knew that November is Aviation History Month? Not me! Once I discovered it, though, it became irresistible to me as a 3 scrappers theme! Aviation has taken a significant place in our family’s history this very month, as our son-in-law Zach has sworn in for active duty in the USAF and entered Officer Training School. He is slotted to become a pilot, and we’re eagerly awaiting his Undergraduate Pilot Training orders that will let us know where he and our daughter will spend the next couple of years.
There’s something exceptionally exciting and exhilarating about the very idea of flying, isn’t there? Perhaps you’d like to join us in the One Theme: Three Scrappers challenge this month by creating a page dealing with aviation. You could feature your family’s air travel to a vacation destination, aircraft engineering, military aviation, pilot training…anything relating to flight! To provide some further inspiration, here are THREE pages on this ONE theme by some of our talented CT members:
