Atlanta Chapter.

The Atlanta Chapter of NDTA held its February meeting on the north side of Atlanta (north of the 285 perimeter). Meetings usually are held in south Atlanta, but in an effort to attract participation, the location was changed. Guest speaker was Lois Wilson, Vice President of Military Sales for World Airways. World Airways has a long and proud tradition of partnership and support for the DOD. The company's mission is to provide specialized air transportation solutions through innovative people committed to delivering the highest levels of safety, reliability, customer satisfaction, and overall value. Lois gave a terrific rundown on the World Airway fleet and capabilities, highlighting some of the direct support to the deployed forces, and a discussion of the air bridge linking CONUS and Southwest Asia via Leipzig, Germany. Members were fascinated by a video presentation commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Operation Babylift, the famous air lift of orphans out of Vietnam in the final days of the war. The March chapter meeting moved back to the south side of Atlanta on March 19. Lockheed Martin led a discussion on In Transit Visibility systems.
