Damon Ring from Ohio is flying to Taylor, TX to compete in tomorrow's Rocket 100 air race in his 390 powered RV-8. Wayne Hadath from Canada is flying to Taylor, TX to compete in tomorrow's Rocket 100 air race. They decide to fly along together. A governor oil line fails enroute with no indication in the cockpit to Damon. Wayne sees it streaming oil and reports it to Damon. Damon makes an emergemcy landing in an isolated airport of opportunity that had been hit by a tornado but is being used by a crop dusting operation. They had the parts, made him up a new hose and sent him on his way. When I heard the story tonight the canadian with Wayne said he had heard of southern hospitality but this that the first time he had experienced it first hand. He was impressed. Where did it happen ... Arkansas.
