Thanks for the info.....
In 1955 my Mother, took charge of the newly created WBCCI, however someone else on that Caravan was upset about her selection.

No matter what the lineage is...Silver is uniquely beautiful and Avion makes a dang fine unit. We purchased ours from a forum member and enjoy it very much. We love our AS too. There are units out there, but not the quantities the likes of AS. There are two units list in the classified section.

Also who wanted to be in charge of the WBCCI in 1955, but had to settle to start up the Avion Club.

I need to dig out files to write up this one. It is not on the A list, but definitely a great campfire story.
