About the event

The Empire State Aerosciences Museum will hold its monthly Fly-In Breakfast on Saturday, July 16, 2022 from 8:30 am – 10:30 am at 250 Rudy Chase Drive, Glenville, NY 12302 (off Route 50). Enjoy an assortment of pancakes, French toast, eggs, sausage, potatoes, juice, coffee, tea, fruit and more. The breakfast is open to the public.

At 10 am, local Archaeologist Joseph W. Zarzynski (RPA) will talk about his involvement with the recovery of a WWII Aircraft from Loch Ness, Scotland. For nearly eight decades, since 1933, a loch (lake) in the Highlands of Scotland has been the focus of numerous expeditions trying to solve the mystery of Nessie, the "Loch Ness monster." However, another "monster," a twin-engine Wellington bomber aircraft, ditched into the waterway on New Year's Eve, 1940.

Zarzynski, a resident of Saratoga County, was a member of the Loch Ness Wellington Association, one of the groups in the coalition that raised the twin-engine aircraft from over 200 feet of water. He was present at the 1985 event as a correspondent for "General Aviation News". Zarzynski will present a PowerPoint talk about the history of the remarkable plane, the search for Nessie, and the dramatic raising of the Aircraft. Zarzynski will also have copies of his new book, “Lochend--Monster Hunting on the Run” for sale. Not only does the book review the high-tech searches for Nessie, it likewise includes the story of the "Loch Ness Wellington bomber."

Fly-In if you would like. Pilots: Tower Frequency 121.3; Ground 121.9. Land at Schenectady County Airport  and taxi to Richmor Aviation North. Tell them you are going to ESAM.
