April 1985, Concorde flies supersonic. This is the only picture ever taken of Concorde flying at Mach2, 1,350 mph. It was taken from a Royal Air Force Tornado, which rendezvoused with Concorde briefly to the south of Ireland. Although the Tornado could match (and even exceed) Concorde's cruising speed it could only do so for a matter of minutes due to the enormous rate of fuel consumption. After racing to catch Concorde and struggling to keep up, the Tornado broke off the rendezvous after just four minutes, while Concorde cruised serenely on to JFK!

Flying with good and bad pilots—what I’ve learned as a new CFI | Air Facts Journal

I became a flight instructor late in life (my mid-50s) and it has been fascinating after many years of “left seat” flying to take this next step in my flying career. Shameless plug and article spoiler: If you’ve ever thought about becoming an instructor after years of flying, you’ll be fasci...

General information

It was a group of Civil Air Patrol members who founded the Congressional Flying Club in the late 1940's. (To this day, the flying club continues to be associated with the Civil Air Patrol through the Montgomery Senior Squadron at Montgomery County Airpark.) When Congressional Airport was closed to make way for the shopping center in 1956, the Congressional Flying Club and Civil Air Patrol squadron moved out to Davis Airport in Laytonsville Maryland (W50). A few years later, they moved to the new Montgomery County Airpark where the club and CAP squadron still thrive today. Today the Congressional Flying Club and Montgomery Senior Squadron are still very active and vibrant organizations. Many members participate in the monthly fly-ins to interesting destinations. The majority of the club's planes make the annual journey to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the mecca of American General Aviation, for the AirVenture air show. And you can always find a quorum of members after our weekly meetings at a designated restaurant sharing the infamous "there I was at 12,000 feet" hangar stories.

I thought this was a pretty interesting read. What happens when COVID causes a facility to close and how it affects you in flight.
Flashback to Nov 2017... The gang that flew club airplanes to the Bahamas.

Please delete if not allowed. I am a student pilot looking to enjoy your Club. I read the requirements for membership. I assume i would have to hold off with attempting to join until after The outbreak??
Attention, CFC members! I have a used Flight Gear bag from Sporty's Pilot Shop that I no longer use -- it's free to a good home, but you have to pick it up. The bag is bright red; it's 20+ years old but in good condition. I will be in Hagerstown temporarily starting Monday, January 13. First to PM me gets the bag.
Your club plane over my house in Windsor, PA, at approximately 2pm Eastern Time., flying South. Pretty cool.
First class service for our humble chariot.
Short final.
