Welcome to the April 15, 2022, issue of Aerotech News and Review. Our cover story this week is about the 50th-anniversary celebration for Joe Davis Middle School. And the Healing & Honor Field is coming back to Pelona Vista Park in Palmdale. We give you information on how to sponsor a flag, how to volunteer, and when the opening and Memorial Day ceremonies will be.

In this issue’s High Desert Hangar Stories, Bob Alvis shares the story how Flora Belle Reece, an aviation pioneer and legend, fulfilled a dream of flying the P-38 Lightning – many years after the end of World War II.
