OK, the part about flying 41 hours in coach class not-so-great ... Read More »

Thomas Michael EdmondsonI just need a digital photo and create your oil painting, watercolor, colored pencil or pastel drawing from that. It is a computer graphic that I then have printed on gallery wrapped canvas (ready to hang on your wall) or high grade paper (you frame). I did an oil painting for Judy Birchler of her in a biplane at Antique Airfield I offered to donate a canvas (18x24) at this years sulphur springs fly-in to help LLT and support you all. Judy has seen the Huf plane done in oil that I donated in their memory at Antique Airfield. Anyone can message me at my Facebook page or LIKE it. Thanks Judy & Company.

Gayla MaasLooks as if they are doing recovery instead of rescue now. 2 men in the Bonanza, and one lady in the Citabria, according to news reports. :-(

Gayla MaasIt seems divers have found the Bonanza and its occupants. Still looking for the Citabria. Although authorities have not released names, Richard Falstrom says the other pilot was his wife, Mary Falstrom. www.startnetzero.net/news/read/article/the_associated_press-3_people_believed_aboard_2_planes_tha...
