goes by the handle of "Gray Eagle". One look at the photo of him
at left should be hint enough why. We like to refer to him as "Rembrandt"
for all his beautiful artfwork of the planes we flew. Even though he lives
on the other side of the country in Virginia, we keep a seat for him at our
gatherings. He does beautiful work. Our
only wish is that we had been able to fly planes as nice and shiny as he paints
them. Ours always seemed beat-up with scratched paint, dents, and battle damage.
We appreciate more than we can say, having Frank's work here in its own hangar."Thirteen
plus years in the USAF, as an ECM troop .. 1972-1986, I went in a boy just
married and came out crusty, and am still married to the lady who is my best
friend. I met a lot of weasel drivers .. some of the most boresighted people
on the planet and learned from them. (salute to 'Lucky' ..a hell of a flyby
in the last 105 out of George. And to Olin, who had the intakes of that
bird about 16 *inches* above the pavement coming down the runway before his
pitchout over our hangar at Plant 42 on his first checkride in the B-1b.
