#PatchTuesday, April 2017, week 3

While we certainly haven’t run out of club patches for #PatchTuesday, we are pretty darn close.  Therefore, #PatchTuesday is now switching over to showcase flying events.  How many of these have you attended?


This patch features an outline of the USA with IN highligthed in blue and a star at Muncie's location.  It is for the AMA National Flying Site Grand Opening in 1992.

This patch features an eagle carrying a model rocket.  It soars above a fish and a backpack.  There is a odel airplane next to it.  For the Boy Scout Fall Camp-o-ree 1997.
This technically isn’t a model aviation event only patch, but they flew models at the event, so we’ll count it. Patch, 1997 Fall Camp-o-ree, National Model Aviation Museum, donated by DeWayne M. Baird, 2006.35.01.

  1. I have a pretty good selection of embroidered model aircraft company patches. Many from companies that no longer exist.
    I enjoy looking at AMAs collection.
