Faith Vilas Soars over Lake Michigan

On July 1, 2013, LPL alumna (1984) Faith Vilas flew across Lake Michigan in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the first Lake Michigan crossing, made by her grandfather, Logan A. (Jack) Vilas, on July 1, 1913.

Faith's family, friends, and colleagues from the Planetary Science Institute (PSI) were there to greet her when she landed near Chicago's Navy Pier. Photos of the day are available from PSI: http://www.psi.edu/news/vilasflight.html and more detail about the flight and the history behind it is in a PSI press release.
