EAA Launches EAA Warbirds Briefing e-Newsletter
November 19, 2009 — EAA and its EAA Warbirds of America division has launched Briefing, a new e-newsletter for EAA’s Warbird community and enthusiasts. The monthly publication includes feature stories as well as content focusing on government affairs, operational safety, aircraft under restoration, news from warbird squadrons and regions, and more. The newsletter will also include links to audio, video, and the growing number of warbird discussion topics on Oshkosh365.
Harold Cannon, editor, is an active WOA member and is enthusiastic about his new role. “This newsletter is partially written by you,” he said. “Please submit a note or pictures about your local goings-on. Take some time to write an article about your project; maybe you need help in finding that historic piece or part, or submit a report about what your local squadron has planned.”
Cannon was born in rural Arkansas in 1956. Standing in the back yard watching crop dusters instilled an early and lifelong love of aviation. (Either that or organophosphate poisoning, it’s up for grabs.) He has three children and four Warbirds, all of whom he loves dearly. He is a member of EAA and Tennessee Warbirds Squadron 1. Harold has attended Oshkosh 16 consecutive years, the last 10 in a Warbird of some type (T-6, T-34, L-39). His ability to step back briskly when asked to volunteer is impaired. When not hanging out at the airport, he practices neurosurgery to pay the bills. Cannon was serious about reader participation. Comments and submissions can be sent to Warbirds@EAA.org.
