    Carl Chance is an obvious choice for the KAM board. Few people have done more to spread the word about Kansas Aviation History. His website is legendary, throughout Kansas, and well-known elsewhere (and shows up constantly and prominently in Google searches for Kansas-related aviation topics).

    There is simply no other website on Earth that presents as much Kansas aviation history to the world (and I’m sure: I’m an internationally published aviation historian who runs a moderately large aviation site that tries, but hardly “competes” with his, in that field.). Indeed, there are probably not any half-dozen web sites, combined, that are so rich with Kansas aviation history.

    And what a cast of writers he has assembled: just about all the leading experts on Kansas aviation history, including the former head of the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum, Kansas’ former State Aviation Director, and the probably all of most important published authors on Kansas aviation history.

    For all of his achievement in this field, none is more courteous, humble, and self-effacing. He’s so nice a guy that I’m embarrased to be in the same room with him, for want of comparable personal characteristics. Good thing for our enemies that he doesn’t fly for the military: He could charm any opposing aviator into surrender. When it comes to leadership, I’ve got a lot to learn from him.

    For any Kansas aviation history endeavor, this is a guy to listen to, when he speaks.
