Default Memories

Tom was instrumental in the completion of my RV. My father and I worked together for many years to build our RV6A, but when it was ready for flight, my father was too disabled to fly it and I did not yet have my license. Tom performed the first flight, and flew off the 25 hours. Then we winched my dad into the rafters of the hangar, and lowered him into the plane. Tom took Paul on his one and only flight in our RV. Thanks Tom, I will never forgot you and your help...
