Open Hangar Day at American Aero Services

American Aero Services hosted an Open House at their facilities back in February. The Colling’s Foundation aircraft were back for the last round of maintenance before going out on tour. Lots of other work going on that day and the staff were extremely nice and open to talk with visitors.
