Bob Fogg and New Hampshire's
     Golden Age of Aviation - by: Author Jane Rice

Thanks to her father, Jane Rice was exposed to the antique airplane hobby from a young age. There was a grass airstrip in the back yard of her home on Parade Road in Laconia, NH, just up the hill from the Weirs, and a variety of old airplanes in the hangar over the years. Although she never learned to fly, she has always been interested in the historical side of aviation, which led her to investigate the history of the Weirs Seaplane Base, where her grandfather was in the seaplane business with Bob Fogg in the 1930s.  

“Bob Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation” tells the story of the Granite State’s true pioneer of aviation, and includes many previously unpublished images of airplanes and aviators of the 1920s and 1930s. Bob Fogg brought aviation to Concord and the Weirs in the early ‘20s and he and his pilots introduced flying to a whole generation that grew up in that time period.

Jane will present about the writing of her book and have copies available for sale.
