Dear All,

There should be a link when entering "crash covers", "air crash covers" or "crash mail" to both the AAMS and the Wreck & Crash Mail Society, whose website is www.wreckandcrash.org.

Regards,

Ken Sanford

Following up on a suggestion from Dave Crotty, I have inserted in the "Airmail" article on Wikipedia a link to the AAMS site.  I placed our link first under "External Links" on the assumption that we're #1.    : )    I will do more editing of that main "Airmail" article when I get a chance, but others might want to go there to check it.  Note that one needs to create a Wikipedia account in order to be able to edit.  To create an account, one just does a search for "Why would I want a Wikipedia account?" or some such wording.

Re: AAMS officers needed (numbers corrected)

GreyOldDave
 

Sorry that I took a little liberty with the numbers in this message. The APJ costs about $37K after advertising income. The Vol 1 and Vol 2  issues of the 7th edition of the catalog cost about $70K. Volume 3 (Polar) was not out when the June 2016 Finance report was distributed but it was printed in the traditional way.
Additionally we have about $118K of publication inventory (much of which we have had in storage for many decades) of which we sold about $4.7K in the 2015-2016 year.
We do need experienced business and hobby persons to help us run the AAMS.

Folks
The AAMS is about to appoint and elect new officers. The society is at an dangerous point. It is down to 850 members and brings in about $16,000  in dues each year. That sounds great except that we spend $46,000 a year just to publish the APJ. About $12,000 of that goes to the editor.l
We also just published two great new volumes of the catalog with at least two more volumes coming soon. That again is great except that we also just spent $50,000 each to publish 1000 copies of each when we probably will never sell more than a few hundred each. 

We need a president who knows enough about publishing to help us get on track.  We do have a bit of cash in the treasury but it will not last long. 
So my question is, do any of you have the skills needed to help the AAMS through this? Do you know someone we could recruit?
We do have a small group of members trying to resolve this, including myself but we need some people with these skills to make it work. 
Can you help the society? Let us know.

Re: Latecoere Lt de Vaisseau Paris F-NORD

GreyOldDave
 

From my reading of Berry's book there were several trips by two different Late 521s
The F-NORD flew to and from Foynes and Biscarrosse on 15/7/28
The F-ARAP flew to and from Foynes and Biscarrosse on 6/6/39
The F-ARAP flew to and from Ft. Washington to Botwood to Biscarrosse on 3/8/39
The F-NORD flew from Ft. Washington to Botwood to Biscarrosse on 27/8/39

This book would not record a direct flight from NY to Biscarrosse.

I an certain that this is not all there is to these trips.

I cannot find any record of it stopping in Newfoundland.

The photo is likely to have been a shot of the "Lt. de Vaisseaux Paris," the 521, which toured the Caribbean in 1935.  A real ugly duckling, but the interior featured a kind of central ballroom fashioned of beautiful wood.  Definitely a heavy aircraft, and apparently not hurricane-proof.  The aircraft was salvaged from Pensacola Bay and, in refurbished form, effected a transatlantic round trip in 1937.  Then, in 1939, Guillaumet and St. Exupery flew it from France to New York as a demonstration of its capability to serve in the North Atlantic.  The outbreak of war put an end to those plans.  Good article in Wikipedia.  Dan Gribbin.  https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lat%C3%A9co%C3%A8re_521

Some years ago Jay Stotts was judging my exhibit and mentioned that his mother had a photo of a Latecore at a port on the east coast but he didn't know which one. I wondered many times if it was indeed the 521(before wwII) or maybe later one of the larger 631s after the war. Maybe this answers that question.

HOTEL SCAM ADVISORY:  APS AmeriStamp & Stamp Show Guests
February 10, 2017
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
The American Philatelic Society (APS) has received several complaints from members regarding calls or emails received from a third party, indicating that the APS AmeriStamp Expo and Stamp Show hotel blocks are full and soliciting a room reservation through the caller’s travel agency.  When asked, the caller cannot typically identify the show hotel, and has no knowledge of our event.
This third party is NOT authorized by the APS to solicit room reservations on behalf of the APS.  This is a form of “Housing Pirating”.  These ‘housing pirates’ or ‘bandits’ are companies that phone, email, or fax convention attendees, claiming to offer room reservation services for hotels near a convention.  They may falsely claim to be affiliated with the APS.
Do not respond to any unsolicited calls or emails from a third party offering hotel reservations.  Unless you have initiated the communication, please do not provide anyone with your personal information, especially your credit card number.  If you provide your credit card information to one of these companies, your card may be charged and there is no guarantee you will have a room upon your arrival to Reno or Richmond.
APS AUTHORIZED LODGING
At this time, the only authorized blocks of rooms being held for upcoming APS shows are:
• Atlantis Casino Resort Spa – 3800 S. Virginia St., Reno, NV 89502.  To reserve a room:  Call 800-723-6500 ("AmeriStamp Expo" or "ASE"), or visit the Atlantis website.  For alternate lodging, contact Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority:  (800) 367-7366, visitrenotahoe.com.
Marriott Richmond – 500 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA  23219.  To reserve a room:  Call (800) 228-9290, or click this APS Booking Link.  If you are seeking alternate hotels, please contact the Richmond Region Tourism: (804) 783-7450, VisitRichmondVa.com.
REPORTING FRAUD
If contacted by someone asking if you need a room at an APS stamp show, or misrepresenting themselves as a representative of the APS, please share details with the APS to help us make a case against the inquiring organization.
     • Get as much information as you can, such as the:
         » Name of the company
         » Name of the person calling
         » Company address
         » Email address
         »
Telephone number
     • Request information in writing
The American Philatelic Society is NOT affiliated with the following company, whom we believe is responsible for the complaints to date:
National Travel Associates
1 (877) 595-ROOM (7666)
www .nationaltravelassociates .com
Business License: NV20111324251
Entity Number: E0274712011-2

This company, based in Nevada, may appear legitimate – having both a website and social media pages online, but it is not authorized to make room reservations for any APS Stamp Show.  Several complaints are on file about this firm with the Better Business Bureau.
