Wild Mama returns from TN

After a beautiful sunny, cloudless week in Tennessee, Wild Mama braved the storms over Florida to head back home. She needs to get her spa treatment and other work so she can be ready for the race. Terry and Vern should be departing around June 13th for the Air Race Classic adventure after another trip out to Jackson Hole, WY - a little vacationing before the race this year. Stay tuned to the 2009 ARC pages for the whole 2009 adventure starting with the vacation.

"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.
