1947 TAYLORCRAFT BC12-D: Moving to Roanoke


The VAHS helped facilitate the consignment of Delegate Frank Hargrove’s Taylorcraft to Roanoke Regional Airport. The aircraft (Del. Hargrove’s first airplane) will join the VAHS Waco when it is hung from the ceiling of the Roanoke terminal in April. VAHS Board members Ray Tyson and Van Crosby, along with Tony Penna from Hanover, helped Jay Ball and his ROA maintenance team load the airplane for what could be its final journey. Del. Hargrove has been a member of VAHS since1980. A “hanging” ceremony is planned and will be announced in the near future. All VAHS members are invited to attend.

Frank Hargrove is well known in Virginia for his 28 years in politics and his business expertise. As a young man, he served in the USAF and attended Virginia Tech on a football scholarship. We look forward to seeing him at the ceremony.
