Robert Bunke Honored

October 1, 2017

On the weekend of July 15 I flew my airplane to Rushford, Minnesota, at the invitation of my good friend and ABS member Jim Bunke to attend the naming of Rushford’s Robert Bunke Field (55Y) in honor of Jim’s father and past ABS member, Robert Bunke. Rushford is small town southeast of Rochester, Minnesota. I was not only excited to be invited to the ceremony, but also to get 10 hours of flying time back and forth from Wichita. I left early Friday afternoon and arrived in Rochester that evening and was greeted by Jim’s brother Jay, who took me to the hotel. I had not expected to be picked up, so it was a very nice surprise. The trip was off to a great start.
