The Ninety Nines Fly In 1964

The Delmar (State-Line) airport was used as a place to fly into, have lunch and a little social meeting by amateur pilots.  In 1964 the International Women Pilot’s magazine had a mention of the airport when the Washington DC Chapter flew in to have their business meeting.

"WASHINGTON, D.C. C H APTER By Jacqueline M. C. Smith
On Saturday, November 7, the weather was with the 99 s and we did not have to resort to rain dates. We had our Fly-in at Delmar State Line Airport at Delmar, Md. Nancy Tier flew in in her Cessna 170 and brought along Alice Fuchs and Mary Ann Shelley. Peggy Borek, chairman of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, flew in from Philadelphia in her Cessna 150. Eve Mcllveen, who was the coordinator for air transportation to the fly-in, flew a Cherokee 140 in and brought Lu Murray with her. Bea Wilder flew in with two guests with her Dottie Allen and Louise Malone. Incidentally, Louise is a student pilot and no doubt a potential 99 member for our chapter! Chapter chairman, Laura Zerener, flew her freshly painted 140 in. A short business meeting was held and a lot of hangar flying done. The wood at Delmar is very good and reasonably priced, too a combination to take into consideration! At this Delmar meeting, it was decided to resume the "Christmas Basket idea this year. As most of you know, this basket is filled with donations and then given to some needy family. Nancy is looking into getting the name of a needy family.?
