Note: the correct date for the May meeting <strong>is</strong><br />

Wednesday, May 11th<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are lots <strong>of</strong> things going on th<strong>is</strong> month. Th<strong>is</strong><br />

month we celebrate <strong>Police</strong> Week, May 15-21. Open House for<br />

members <strong>an</strong>d their families at HQ will be Saturday, May 21st. <strong>The</strong><br />

Department Memorial Services will be held on the front lawn <strong>of</strong><br />

HQ, Tuesday, May 17 th at 11 AM. In addition, May 10 th <strong>is</strong> Lobby<br />

Day in Alb<strong>an</strong>y. <strong>The</strong> RPA <strong>an</strong>d the Alli<strong>an</strong>ce <strong>of</strong> Public Retirees<br />

Org<strong>an</strong>izations <strong>of</strong> NY State will be running a bus trip up to the<br />

Capitol to seek support from our state leg<strong>is</strong>lators in support <strong>of</strong><br />

leg<strong>is</strong>lation for our retirees. <strong>The</strong> bus will leave from behind HQ<br />

at 8AM <strong>an</strong>d you must reserve a space on the bus for the trip. <strong>The</strong><br />

RPA will provide food on the bus <strong>an</strong>d also lunch at the Capitol.<br />

Members are urged to attend th<strong>is</strong> turnout. Spouses are also<br />

invited to attend th<strong>is</strong> trip. Call the RPA <strong>of</strong>fice at 516 294-4488 for<br />

reservation request <strong>an</strong>d details on where else you c<strong>an</strong> get the bus.<br />

Nassau Interim Fin<strong>an</strong>ce Authority has taken over the<br />

county fin<strong>an</strong>ces <strong>an</strong>d the PBA, SOA <strong>an</strong>d DAI have taken them to<br />

court because NIFA has done away with the contracted ra<strong>is</strong>e that<br />

was supposed to go into effect the same day they took over the<br />

county fin<strong>an</strong>ces. Me<strong>an</strong>while, gas has hit $4 a gallon in places <strong>an</strong>d<br />

oil <strong>is</strong> at a record high <strong>an</strong>d it costs over $900 to fill up your oil t<strong>an</strong>k<br />

at home. <strong>The</strong> Federal Government almost shut down last month<br />

because they couldn’t agree on a budget. I c<strong>an</strong>’t find one person<br />

that admits to voting for voted for current admin<strong>is</strong>tration.. Is there<br />

<strong>an</strong>y good news out there?<br />

Nassau Blue South<br />

Bob Hayes reports their Saturday luncheons are in full<br />

swing. <strong>The</strong>y are also looking for some new members in the area<br />

<strong>an</strong>d if you are interested in joining them, contact Bob at (561) 792-<br />

5325 or call Al Sarro at (561) 499-3272, so if you are in the Lake<br />

Worth/WPB area, give them a call.<br />

Attention Suffolk County Residents<br />

As I reported last month, the Suffolk County Leg<strong>is</strong>lature<br />

adopted <strong>an</strong>d the County Executive signed a county resolution<br />

authorizing the Suffolk County <strong>Police</strong> Department to qualify<br />

retired law enforcement <strong>of</strong>ficers from other law enforcement<br />

agencies under the Firearms Qualification Program (HR 218 Law<br />

Enforcement Safety Act <strong>of</strong> 2004, amended 2010). <strong>The</strong> cost <strong>of</strong><br />

taking the course <strong>is</strong> $37. <strong>The</strong> SCPD has not set up <strong>an</strong>y schedule<br />

or given <strong>an</strong>y information about how, when <strong>an</strong>d where they will<br />

conduct the course. As soon as I have information, we’ll post it on<br />

the web site. Me<strong>an</strong> while, I’ve written to the Comm<strong>is</strong>sioner again<br />

<strong>an</strong>d also to Joe Belesi, County Leg<strong>is</strong>lator asking for their help<br />

in getting a program establ<strong>is</strong>hed in Nassau. I’ve also asked the<br />

PBA to help with all <strong>of</strong> th<strong>is</strong> to get our own department involved<br />

in certifying our retired members. It would be a win win situation<br />

for the county because the fees charged would more th<strong>an</strong> cover<br />

the costs. <strong>The</strong>re are over 12,000 retired law enforcement <strong>of</strong>ficers<br />

with p<strong>is</strong>tol permits living in Nassau County. Why should <strong>an</strong>y <strong>of</strong><br />

them travel to Suffolk County or up state to get certified when it<br />

c<strong>an</strong> be done right here in our own county? <strong>The</strong> county <strong>is</strong> looking<br />

for money, well, here <strong>is</strong> a way to get some extra funds into the<br />

c<strong>of</strong>fers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Cradle <strong>of</strong> Aviation was originally a dream <strong>of</strong> Alicia Patterson. Alicia Patterson reluct<strong>an</strong>tly became a<br />

newspaper publ<strong>is</strong>her in 1940 because her new husb<strong>an</strong>d w<strong>an</strong>ted to keep her busy <strong>an</strong>d out <strong>of</strong> trouble, <strong>an</strong>d because<br />

she w<strong>an</strong>ted to show her father that she could be as good a journal<strong>is</strong>t as he was. From that timid start she created<br />

the most successful new daily newspaper <strong>of</strong> the postwar period, Newsday. One <strong>of</strong> her v<strong>is</strong>ions was the creation <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>an</strong> air <strong>an</strong>d space museum at Mitchel Field <strong>an</strong>d she donated millions <strong>of</strong> dollars to establ<strong>is</strong>h the museum with the<br />

condition that if the County <strong>of</strong> Nassau didn’t match her donations, the museum would be ab<strong>an</strong>doned <strong>an</strong>d never<br />

built.<br />

Today, the museum sits over in Mitchel Field <strong>an</strong>d occupies some <strong>of</strong> the ex<strong>is</strong>ting h<strong>an</strong>gers from the original<br />

Field. If you have never been to the museum, it <strong>is</strong> something that you must see. <strong>The</strong> museum <strong>is</strong> a h<strong>is</strong>tory <strong>of</strong><br />

aviation from right here on Long Isl<strong>an</strong>d <strong>an</strong>d Long Isl<strong>an</strong>d played a very import<strong>an</strong>t roll in the adv<strong>an</strong>cement <strong>an</strong>d<br />

development <strong>of</strong> aviation in the United Sates. <strong>The</strong>re were more airfields in Nassau County in the early days <strong>of</strong><br />

aviation th<strong>an</strong> in <strong>an</strong>y other place in the United States. <strong>The</strong> Mineola Bicycle Shop was one <strong>of</strong> the original airpl<strong>an</strong>e<br />

builders <strong>of</strong> early aviation.<br />

I recently had the pleasure <strong>of</strong> having a guided tour <strong>of</strong> the museum from ARPO member Al Anderson. Al<br />

has been working at the museum since its opening. I had one <strong>of</strong> my gr<strong>an</strong>d daughters Brooke with me for the<br />

tour <strong>an</strong>d she got to be in m<strong>an</strong>y <strong>of</strong> the photos right along side the d<strong>is</strong>plays. M<strong>an</strong>y <strong>of</strong> the airpl<strong>an</strong>es <strong>an</strong>d exhibits are<br />

original <strong>an</strong>d m<strong>an</strong>y are the last <strong>of</strong> their kind in the world. <strong>The</strong> WW II US Army glider on d<strong>is</strong>played <strong>is</strong> original.<br />

It was found in Iowa <strong>an</strong>d was being used as a chicken coup when they found it. It was brought back here <strong>an</strong>d<br />

completely restored. <strong>The</strong> P47 on d<strong>is</strong>play <strong>is</strong> the last production model <strong>of</strong> that pl<strong>an</strong>e built at Republic.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Mineola Bicycle Shop, one <strong>of</strong><br />

the first places in Nassau County that<br />

was building early type airpl<strong>an</strong>es<br />

Grumm<strong>an</strong> F-11A Tiger Th<strong>is</strong> aircraft was<br />

obtained from the Naval Test Center at<br />

Patuxent River, Maryl<strong>an</strong>d. It was restored<br />

by the Grumm<strong>an</strong> Retiree Group, <strong>an</strong>d <strong>is</strong> now<br />

<strong>The</strong> Hempstead Plains By 1909 the first<br />

daring flights were made from the central<br />

area <strong>of</strong> Nassau County, then known as the<br />

Hempstead Plains. Because the flat, open<br />

l<strong>an</strong>dscape made a natural airfield, close<br />

to New York, the earliest aviators were<br />

drawn to the place. Thus aviation was first<br />

introduced to th<strong>is</strong> area where it was to<br />

remain the focus <strong>of</strong> intense activity for the<br />

next 50 years.<br />

Herring-Curt<strong>is</strong>s No. 1 Golden Flyer (replica)<br />

Long Isl<strong>an</strong>d's first successful aircraft flights<br />

were made by th<strong>is</strong> aircraft in July 1909 on a<br />

portion <strong>of</strong> the Hempstead Plains near where<br />

the county courthouses now are. By virtue<br />

<strong>of</strong> th<strong>is</strong> first flight, the aviation industry on<br />

Long Isl<strong>an</strong>d was born. Aviation pioneer<br />

Glenn Curt<strong>is</strong>s was comm<strong>is</strong>sioned by the<br />

New York Aeronautic Society to provide <strong>an</strong><br />

aircraft for $5000. <strong>The</strong> group set up camp<br />

on the Hempstead Plains near Mineola as<br />

the area was flat, open, with <strong>an</strong> absence <strong>of</strong><br />

trees. <strong>The</strong>re was plenty <strong>of</strong> room to m<strong>an</strong>euver.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Herring-Curt<strong>is</strong>s Comp<strong>an</strong>y, which lasted<br />

but a year, was formed by Curt<strong>is</strong>s <strong>an</strong>d local<br />

aviation pioneer Augustus Herring. Th<strong>is</strong> was<br />

however, the first Americ<strong>an</strong> comp<strong>an</strong>y to build<br />

<strong>an</strong>d sell <strong>an</strong> airpl<strong>an</strong>e. <strong>The</strong> pl<strong>an</strong>e flew well for<br />

its day <strong>an</strong>d was very m<strong>an</strong>euverable. One <strong>of</strong><br />

the first airpl<strong>an</strong>es built by Curt<strong>is</strong>s employed<br />

m<strong>an</strong>y controls developed <strong>an</strong>d patented by the<br />

Wright brothers.

Not only were airpl<strong>an</strong>es made in Nassau County, but also support<br />

vehicles like th<strong>is</strong> truck which was made in Farmingdale.<br />

Th<strong>is</strong> replica <strong>of</strong> the Spirit <strong>of</strong> St.<br />

Lou<strong>is</strong> <strong>is</strong> the actual pl<strong>an</strong>e that<br />

was used by the actor Jimmy<br />

Stewart in the movie where<br />

he played the part <strong>of</strong> Charles<br />

Lindbergh <strong>an</strong>d h<strong>is</strong> flight across<br />

the Atl<strong>an</strong>tic Oce<strong>an</strong>.<br />

A d<strong>is</strong>play <strong>of</strong> <strong>an</strong> airpl<strong>an</strong>e<br />

mainten<strong>an</strong>ce h<strong>an</strong>ger during WW I<br />

In the h<strong>is</strong>tory <strong>of</strong> Americ<strong>an</strong> commercial<br />

aviation, there <strong>is</strong> no airline more influential,<br />

import<strong>an</strong>t, <strong>an</strong>d better known th<strong>an</strong> P<strong>an</strong><br />

Americ<strong>an</strong> Airways, establ<strong>is</strong>hed in 1927. It<br />

was not the first Americ<strong>an</strong> passenger airline,<br />

nor did it ever meet with much success in<br />

the domestic market, but P<strong>an</strong> Am (as it was<br />

more commonly known), represented a new<br />

adventurous image <strong>of</strong> the United States<br />

to the world. P<strong>an</strong> Am's heyday was in the<br />

1930s when it operated its famous Clipper<br />

Ships service—<strong>an</strong> oce<strong>an</strong>-wide network with<br />

a fleet <strong>of</strong> 25 flying boats that cr<strong>is</strong>scrossed<br />

both the Pacific <strong>an</strong>d the Atl<strong>an</strong>tic oce<strong>an</strong>s.<br />

<strong>The</strong> service flour<strong>is</strong>hed in the late 1930s,<br />

delivering both mail <strong>an</strong>d passengers, <strong>an</strong>d<br />

gained a reputation as one <strong>of</strong> the most<br />

dependable <strong>an</strong>d eleg<strong>an</strong>t air services in the<br />

world.


A d<strong>is</strong>play <strong>of</strong> one <strong>of</strong> the space capsules. While<br />

the space capsule <strong>is</strong> a model, the parachute<br />

<strong>is</strong> one <strong>of</strong> the original parachutes from the<br />

Gemini space capsules that returned to earth<br />

from space.<br />

A cut-away model <strong>of</strong> <strong>an</strong> Apollo Spacecraft. Since<br />

there was no gravity in space, there was no need for<br />

<strong>an</strong>y seats, so the astronauts stood up at the controls.<br />

<strong>The</strong> three astronauts spent 3 days cramped in<br />

that crippled space craft after as part <strong>of</strong> routine<br />

procedures, Swigert flips a switch to stir up the two<br />

liquid oxygen t<strong>an</strong>ks in the Service Module, which<br />

unexpectedly causes one <strong>of</strong> them to explode. <strong>The</strong><br />

other t<strong>an</strong>k <strong>is</strong> soon found to be leaking, prompting<br />

M<strong>is</strong>sion Control to abort the Moon l<strong>an</strong>ding, <strong>an</strong>d<br />

forcing the crew to hurriedly shut down Odyssey<br />

<strong>an</strong>d power up Aquarius, so it c<strong>an</strong> keep them<br />

alive for the return home. As the Aquarius crew<br />

watches the Moon passing underneath them, Lovell<br />

imagines walking on its surface. On Earth, after<br />

flight director Kr<strong>an</strong>z declares that "failure <strong>is</strong> not <strong>an</strong><br />

option", Mattingly <strong>is</strong> recruited by flight controller<br />

John Aaron to help prepare procedures to restart<br />

Odyssey once the crew nears Earth.<br />

<strong>The</strong> crew shuts down Aquarius to conserve power,<br />

subjecting them to freezing conditions. Swigert<br />

suspects M<strong>is</strong>sion Control has made a m<strong>is</strong>take <strong>an</strong>d <strong>is</strong><br />

withholding it from them, <strong>an</strong>d in a fit <strong>of</strong> rage, Ha<strong>is</strong>e<br />

blames Swigert's inexperience for the accident; <strong>an</strong><br />

argument ensues but <strong>is</strong> quickly quelled by Lovell.<br />

As <strong>an</strong>other problem ar<strong>is</strong>es—the d<strong>an</strong>gerous buildup<br />

<strong>of</strong> carbon dioxide exhaled by the astronauts—<strong>an</strong><br />

engineering team quickly formulates a solution<br />

which allows the Comm<strong>an</strong>d Module's square air<br />

cle<strong>an</strong>ers to be used in the Lunar Module's round<br />

receptacles. With guid<strong>an</strong>ce systems on Aquarius<br />

shut down, <strong>an</strong>d despite Ha<strong>is</strong>e's fever <strong>an</strong>d freezing<br />

conditions inside the cabin, the crew succeeds in<br />

making a difficult m<strong>an</strong>ual course correction by<br />

briefly igniting the Lunar Module's engine.<br />

Me<strong>an</strong>while, as Mattingly <strong>an</strong>d Aaron struggle to<br />

find a way to power up the Comm<strong>an</strong>d Module with<br />

its limited power, procedures are finalized <strong>an</strong>d sent<br />

to Swigert, who successfully revives Odyssey. After<br />

witnessing the damage to the jett<strong>is</strong>oned Service<br />

Module, the crew prepare for re-entry, unsure <strong>of</strong> the<br />

condition <strong>of</strong> Odyssey's heatshield. <strong>The</strong> crew releases<br />

Aquarius <strong>an</strong>d re-enters the Earth's atmosphere<br />

in Odyssey, <strong>an</strong>d after <strong>an</strong> unusually long period <strong>of</strong><br />

radio silence, the crew reports they are alive <strong>an</strong>d<br />

well; to the great relief <strong>of</strong> M<strong>is</strong>sion Control <strong>an</strong>d the<br />

astronauts' families. After splashing down in the<br />

Pacific Oce<strong>an</strong>, the three men are plucked out <strong>of</strong><br />

the water <strong>an</strong>d taken to the aircraft carrier USS Iwo<br />

Jima.<br />
