Local pilots give lifetime chance to 251 Young Eagles

By Kate Darnell

The skies of Harrison County were filled with Young Eagles this past Saturday.

“I’m scared,” Richard Pence, 8, said as he waited to board a small airplane owned and piloted by Bill Stoeppel.

Both Richard and his brother Michael Vancleve, 9, had never  flown in an airplane, much less a small private plane.

That is, until Saturday.

Richard and Michael were two of the 251 children that flew into the skies as part of the Young Eagles program at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Airport.
