Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated October 24, 1962 partially reads, "Jack Arkovich, 20-year-old Van Nuys glider pilot, admits there are dangers in flying a glider--a motorless airplane which uses air currents to stay off the ground. But most of the perils are made by man, not nature...Jack, an electrical mechanic at Lockheed Missiles in Van Nuys, was invited to be in Washington, D. C., today to accept a Golden C flying badge from the Soaring Society of America (SSA). The presentation is to be made at the Smithsonian Institution National Air Museum. He won't be able to accept his award in person, however, because he can't afford the trip or the time. But he says he is proud of the award."
