1st Saturday Aviation Program and Pancake Breakfast1st Saturday Aviation Program and Pancake Breakfast

Our guest speaker for the October 4th, 1st Saturday Aviation Program and Breakfast will be Mr. Narayan Sengupta. On July 19, 1918, British Sopwith Camels from the new aircraft carrier Furious made an early morning surprise attack on the German naval Zeppelins at Tondern, Germany. Their mission was a tremendous success. It practically ended Zeppelin operations and set the precedent for other carrier attacks including Pearl Harbor. For our October 4, 2014 program, published historian/author Narayan Sengupta traces the evolution of aircraft carriers and naval aviation up to 1941 with a primary focus on the Tondern raid. Sengupta, an American of Franco-Indian heritage, has spent seven years researching American military aviation in World War I. He has traveled across France and the United States to visit airfields, air museums and archives after learning that America's first combat squadrons were based a few hundred yards from his mother's home in Saints, France.
