Default Meet Stella!

Hi All

I finally got Stella's tail art on and got some air to air time with Barry Weber flying photo ship Cover Girl (RV4) and Ray McCrea strapped in facing backward with his cameras.

My wife Sharon designed the paint scheme and tail art and has flown with me 3 times since Stella's been painted. Each time, a compliment has come over the radio, so Sharon's been enjoying the fruits of her talents too!





all best

Default WOW!!!

Right click, set as desktop background.

Thanks

That is a fantastic looking paint job, both of you should be very proud.

Were you here at Cameron Park recently?? Maybe looking at a warbird project?

How about a close up of the tail art?

Thumbs up I love Stella!

Very nice paint job and a tribute to a wonderful story. Good job!

I have given a copy of the book and a stuffed Stella to every young child I buy present for. So cool that you put Stella into your plane. Your wife has very good taste! (Probably in more than one way.)
