04/10/18 I spent the last five weeks heads-down entering new data into the database that drives the Grand Central Air Terminal (GCAT) Web site. As of today you can view 266 pages of the GCAT Register. In the present effort, I entered 121 new pages and 3,756 new records. Today you can view 8,052 total records of individual landings by pilots and aircraft at Glendale, CA between December 14, 1930 and January 19, 1932. Many thousands still to go. Unique to this bout of data entry is that I have entered into the photographs I made in 2009 of the original Register pages archived at the Glendale Public Library. Beginning on Register page 222, you will see the striking difference between photocopied pages and the original color pages of this robust record of Golden Age aviation.
