Members of the local chapter of the "Ninety Nines," an international organization of women pilots, flew their own airplanes into Warwick Municipal Airport on Saturday, Sept. 10. They were there to enjoy an annual picnic sponsored by the local airport as a community service. The "Ninety Nines" was established in 1929 by Amelia Earhart, its first president, and 98 other early female aviators.
