MAINE -- Retired Army National Guard Brig. Gen. Eugene Richardson of Fayette spent Monday afternoon up in a red, white and blue Civil Air Patrol Cessna 182 shooting photos of the demolition of Great Works Dam in Bradley. It was a practice shoot and readiness exercise for CAP’s Maine Wing, which works frequently with the Maine Emergency Management Agency. And when the small plane landed at the Augusta State Airport, a hangar door rose on a celebration designed to recognize his 50 years of safe aviation. Learn more about Richardson’s big day in this article in the local newspaper, the Kennebec Journal.
