SCAA Paints Aviation Mural at Zucker Middle School in Charleston

Despite the ice and a day delay the South Carolina Aviation Association followed through with its Community Service Project at the Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science in North Charleston February 12-14. Sponsored by ADC Engineering, association members painted a mural that depicts aviation scenes and state residents inducted into the South Carolina Aviation Hall of Fame. Among them: NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Ernest Henderson, the first African American in South Carolina to receive his commercial pilot’s license; and Sally Crouch, one of the World War II “Doolittle Raiders.” With the theme “I Can Do That,” the mural also will feature aviation scenes such as general aviation plane and pilot, air traffic control tower, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, aviation mechanic, astronaut, emergency helicopter, FedEx freight airplane and military plane.
