The Indy Transponder is a collection of headlines, links, and articles related to Aviation Edutainment, including air shows and air racing. The blog also highlights aviation heritage.
A reader linked Indy Transponder to a story about Gino. The bloggers asked us to write a guest entry for the website. This short story recalls Gino’s first solo flight in November 1944.
The Short Snorter mentioned in the blog post was part of the ritual following the successful completion of a pilot’s first solo flight.
You can read more about this occasion on the Indy Transponder’s post: http://indytransponder.blogspot.com/2014/08/do-you-know-where-your-short-snorter-is.html .
