News : It is with great sadness and shock that the Lake of the Woods Aero Modelers must tell you all that Hank Rheault from our club died to-day (February 7 2008). We were, very fortunate to have had Hank as a good friend, mentor and active member of our club. Hank was a first rate instructor, served on the executive and always there to help with runway maintenance or facility construction. Working with fiberglass was second nature for him.

Hank had a passion for the Sea Fury and the Mosquito aircraft. He was a walking encyclopedia of local aviation history. He always had a smile on his face when he was doing anything that related to aviation. The image of that huge grin and the thumbs up when he went for a ride on a USA ex navy SNJ2 at Virginia Beach, Virginia in September 2007 is a fond memory that I will cherish.

We will miss him at out Friday morning coffees, at the airfield, at our and our neighbor’s fun fly events and in our shops.
