It sure doesn't feel like ten years ago that I was looking forward to the regular updates on the B-24 thread... :(

At the top of the list...

Every time I look at Diamond Lil, I think of Gary and all that he did for the CAF and warbirding in general. Wow... I can hardly believe it's been 10 years.

Every day that I go into my "War Room', I see the B-25 seat and the lower sump housing from Fifi that came from Gary. Brad, the hurt never really goes away, but fond memories help us along.


That's awesome. I still have a piece of FiFi's skin sitting on my desk that he sent me. RIP

Happy to have known him, at least on line, but sadly never in person.
