President and founding member of the Massey Aerodrome and Massey Air Museum, Jim Douglass wore a lot of hats around our strip - banker, member coordinator, purchasing agent, docent, director, manager - Jim's hands were in everything. A board member of The AMC museum Foundation and a previous board member of the EAA, he was also a long time member of AOPA, the Maryland Airport Managers Association, and a former Commodore of the Columbia Sailing Association and a Quiet Birdman.
After family and flying, Jim's love was dope and fabric! There was no aircraft at Massey that Jim hasn't touched. His methodical and meticulous habits led to truly creative and outstanding work. We miss him. As you look West, take a moment to smile - because you knew Jim Douglass!
