On Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016, the regular monthly membership meeting of EAA Chapter 534 was held at Bob White Field (X61) in Zellwood, Florida, instead of Leesburg International Airport, where the chapter is based.
This gave chapter members a chance to take a look at a homebuild project of EAA Chapter 534 member John Minatelli, who recently moved his project from his home to a hangar at Bob White Field.
He is building a Zenith 750 Cruzer, which will eventually use a Corvair six cylinder engine for its powerplant. He is pretty well along in the construction phase with around 600 building hours so far.
This visit to Bob White Field coincided with a fly-in that the owner of the field, Pete Council, was having at the same time. It was a beautiful day for flying as it was a typical sunny day in Florida with blue skies, moderate temperature and very little wind.
About 50 or so single engine aircraft of all types and vintages showed up to join in the festivities. They served a very nice lunch and had plenty of seating in a large hangar owned by Malcolm Powell of Southern Aircraft Support.
