Ed Hopkins- First Director Of Aircraft Maintenance

October 13, 2009 7:24 pm

The 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum lost one of its true treasures yesterday with the passing of Ed Hopkins who was HAG’s first and only Crew chief. In declining health, Ed was still (always) there as a consultant. He will be greatly missed. For those of you who did not know him, but knew of him:

The following is an article that was printed in this year’s Geneseo Air Show Program.
================================================

As an aviation Mechanic, Ed Hopkins had only worked on one B-17, in Japan, during his military career. Curiously, that airplane ended up in Geneseo in 1986 and became Fuddy Duddy. Ed Hopkins for many years has been the Director of Aircraft Maintenance of the former National Warplane Museum, the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum and Line Chief of the Geneseo Air Show.

As Director of aircraft maintenance, Ed has been responsible for the twenty-five, fifty, seventy-five and hundred hour checks and annual inspections of the Museum’s aircraft. This also includes preventative maintenance, verification of aircraft maintenance logs, reviewing Air Worthiness Directives and solving all major and minor problems that crop up in any type of aircraft.
