Fay just a memory
Immediately upon our return from Oklahoma, Wild Mama was quickly stowed in her hanger awaiting the passage of Tropical Storm Fay. The winds were minimal but the rains were a-plenty, but both Wild Mama and Wild Child weathered the storm without a hitch. Of course, they are still safe and sound as Fay's continued presence in the State of Florida has made flying an impractical venture.

"Wild Bill":  We are very saddened to hear the news of the loss of our friend, Bill Walker. Bill was killed in his Yak 52 March 26th while performing with his aerobatic team, Red WildBill.JPGWildBill1.JPGThunder, in the Wings Over Flagler Airshow in FL. Click HERE a short clip of an interview with Bill from the 2009 Sparta Airshow. Bill took me for a ride in his Yak 52 on March 12 - just 2 weeks ago, after we finished painting the compass rose at SRB. Note the smiles on our faces - this photo was shot after our photo mission getting aerial shots of the new compass rose from the Yak.
