What’s New on the Site

  • Some of you may have noticed that the photo galleries from our past events are no longer accessible. Not to fear! It was a technical issue with our host server, which will require us to re-post the galleries. We will have that fixed in the next few days.
  • We have posted the latest versions of the Inside Aerospace magazine. To see them, click here
  • We are sorry to pass on the following sad news:
    • We heard the following from member Larry Lynn: February 1st Darryl Staab was diagnosed with Lymphoma, stage 3 and entered Torrance Memorial Hospital on Feb 2 and began chemotherapy treatments the following day. I received a call from Torrance Memorial 2/14/2017 at 10:12 PM that our friend Darryl M. Staab had passed away. The cancer had too much of a head start. He will be cremated and wanted no services or memorials. He did say that it would be okay if his friends got together for a few drinks a little later…
    • Dennis Goodno passed away in his sleep after a series of chemo treaments. We have lost a great contributor to the I&T of many successful TRW programs.
    • Sandy Friedfeld passed away on February 11 at age 82.
    • One of our members, Ginny Oliver, wrote to inform us of the passing of a former TRW employee, Vivian Grace Kidwell, last December. Grace was 85.
