Pilots Use Poker for Their Charity Initiative


American Cancer Society to benefit from this poker-related action

A special navigation exercise was held this weekend by 21 pilots at the Jim Hamilton-L.B. Owens Airport in Columbia with an aim to help the American Cancer Society.

The exercise saw the pilots spend the day flying around the state, landing at set points to pick up the components of a model aircraft before returning, assembling the models and then finishing off with a game of poker.

This untypical charity mission called the Palmetto Cup was held despite a delay caused by fog. According to one of the pilots, Manning Frankstone, the event was organized as a tribute to a much respected flight instructor, Earl Yerrick. He explained that "to honor him, to raise money for cancer treatment, is important to pilots out here because Earl meant a lot to us."

In addition, on that day the airport hosted a display of current and vintage aircraft.
