2003 Salinas Airmarking

The CrewA fresh coat of paint made all the difference in the world to the airmarkings at Salinas airport. We had a patriotic choice of red, white and blue paint at our disposal. White was the predominant paint for the SALINAS letters and 119.4 tower frequency numbers. The Ninety-Nines' compass rose really looked spiffy with the refreshed blue and white color scheme. Our Chapter had also received a request to repaint the red cross landing target for the Calstar medivac helicopter, hence the red paint.

Many thanks to our very organized Airmarking Chair Michaele Serasio who brought son George and friend Brian to lend a hand, our Chapter photographer Ann Walker, Chapter members Dana Cefalu, Mona Kendrick, Pat York, Laura Barnett and daughter Michaela, Louise Minniear, Sarah Chauvet, Pam Cabak, and yours truly. After a nourishing lunch of cold cut sandwiches, chips & cookies, we all decided we really did not want to return on Sunday since rain was forecast for Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Needless to say we really boogied with the rest of the project. The wind came up as it always does in the afternoon in Salinas making it a challenge to pour the paint and Michaele had the foresight to have asphalt paint on hand to cover our boo-boos.

Great job all you hard workers!
