Lancaster Airport News & Events
Step Back in Time…..
Ruth Cunningham, of Lancaster, shares a bit of aviation history from 1944.
Ruth grew up on a farm outside of Rohrerstown. Ruth’s mother, Ruth Shuman, was crazy about airplanes. Anytime she would hear a plane she would run outside. This became a daily occurrence as she began waving to the same plane en route to the original Lancaster Airport (then on the Manheim Pike) to drop and pick up mail. Soon the plane started tipping it’s wing in greeting. Then on August 9, 1944, as Ruth waved, a note floated to the ground!
Thanks, Ruth, for sharing this great story with us.
