The Calendars Have Left the Building

It’s that time of year again. The limited edition Lee Bottom Flying Field calendars are on the way to their new owners. Printed every year since 1987, these old fashioned items are now a quarter of a century old tradition. If you receive one, we hope you have someplace special to hang it and put it to good use.

Hanging in offices, hangars, and homes around the world, the Lee Bottom Flying Field calendars have become somewhat of a secret handshake for true aviators. Therefore, if you love the good old-fashioned sport of aviation, and you see one of these hanging on a stranger’s wall, without a word spoken you can almost guarantee you are among friends.

As always, we hope you enjoy them.

Disclaimer: If you are not a true aviator,  you have received this calendar in error; please give it to someone who is. This will save everyone some time and heartache. Any attempts to pass yourself off as a true aviator in order to keep the calendar will be discovered and you will be appropriately punished. Approved courses of punishment include tours of the local FSDO, one day as a volunteer stand-in for TSA cavity search training, three hours of listening to Michael Bolton, and the installation of radios in your favorite antique. You have been warned.
