Our guest speaker for the Friday, January 12 meeting will be our own Bob Bible. His topic is about building and flying the first customer-built Sonex: “Right Seat with Tony Spicer”. Bob has owned and flown this plane since 2010 and still has it at LZU.
Bob is 71 yrs. old and has been flying in general aviation aircraft since he was 10 yrs. old. He grew up in Miami where aviation was great and he got to know many great pilots.
Bob’s dad flew before the war, during the war (CAP then Army Air Corps) and after the war with National Airlines retiring on the Stretch DC-8. Both of his brothers spent their careers in the airlines as Bob says it was “in our blood”.
Bob flew for 6 airlines and did other flying as well, flying Curtis C-46's, DC-3's to DC-10, B-72-73,74,75,767's and an Airbus A-310 to see what it was like. But he still loves light aircraft.
Come join us, Bob’s accounts and stories are sure to entertain.

EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor.
Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.
Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $6 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
