VAHS honors ‘Flying Dr. Nichols’

The Northern Neck-Middle Peninsula Regional Chapter of the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society (VAHS) will host its monthly luncheon presentation on Thursday, March 21, at 11:30 a.m. The program will present the history of Tangier Island’s “Flying Dr. Nichols.”

The chapter will host author Bill Lohmann, relating the extraordinary true story of a local doctor and pilot, based in the town of White Stone on the Northern Neck. “When Dr. David Nichols began flying to Tangier Island on his day off each week, he vowed to island residents that he would never abandon them, and for more than three decades he never did.” Hear the inspiring story of a pilot/country doctor, an isolated island in the Chesapeake Bay, and the remarkable relationship they forged.

The chapter continues to meet on the third Thursday of each month at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and a presentation of informative aviation programs. Everyone interested in aviation is invited to join the members at the Pilot House Restaurant adjacent to Hummel Airport on Route 3 in Topping.
