Guest Speaker
Sr. Member Paul Normandin introduced son-in-law Lt. Brian Masterson, U.S. Navy, to the club. He is presently a flight instructor in Pensacola, Florida and has flown many types of missions including maritime patrol, Antisubmarine Warfare and tracking, rescue, armed reconnaisance, and drug interdiction. Two memorable incidents were tracking a Russian submarine in the North Atlantic and helping to seize $60 million of cocaine. In these operations he commands a crew in a 4-turboprop aircraft that is decked out with a wide array of electronic detection gear such as sonar buoys, magnetic anomaly detectors, and radar.
