Well I made the move from Iowa City to Oklahoma City and obtained cable internet access. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Lloyd Swanburg for managing the web site during my absense. With the higher speed connection we can now accept downloaded images of things Wakkanai; and Lloyd and I would like to invite you to submit your favorite Wakkanai Air Station photos. We are especially interested in beefing up the Wakkanai Air Station before 1966 section, and eventually hope to add a before 1960 section. Anything you care to share would be great.
We now have over 370 images on the site and will continue to add as time and resources permit. Lloyd and I agree that the site is really not ours, but yours and ours. We hope you will feel the same way.
So, if you have not visited the site in awhile, please come back and check it out. We have added sections on Wakkanai Air Station social events and an In Remembrance page to honor those who have departed this mortal coil.
The site has nearly 28,000 hits, which is 25,000 since the first edition of this newsletter. Thanks for your support.
