Kingsbury Has 'High' Hopes'
Mr. Alton Kingsbury, new aviation teacher, had high
hopes for his students. They received a T-33 iet which was
a primary military trainer for many years. The plane was
donated by the Air National Guard. The students used the
plane to study its systems and checked hydraulics and
electrical systems. They also used the engine for static
displays otherwise known as mounted mock-ups.
Aviation received a helicopter from a donor and hoped
to get it running. They had to shorten the blades before
running it in the parking lot. Juniors primarily worked on
The F-84 formerly occupying space in the Aviation
Department was taken apart. They kept the landing gear
and all the instruments but they gave all the metal to the
foundry to be melted and reused.
