#PatchTuesday: Club Patches, pt. 1

Introducing #PatchTuesday!

Model airplane clubs play a vital role in the life & history of model aviation.  The museum honors this role by collecting & preserving club memorabilia, especially patches.  Over the next few months, a few of these patches will be shared each Tuesday.
