Carri Eve Hoagland hopping rides in Wisconsin!

Here’s something that proves the power of ONE.

I just got some very sad news about the death of a pilot I posted in April, I believe the only male pilot we’ve ever posted on Ladies Love Taildraggers. I featured it because his excitement, passion and enthusiasm for flying taildraggers was so genuine and contagious I thought we could all be inspired. Thank you to Shannon Gallagher, Chuck Avon and John Curry for forwarding the links. Our th... Read More »
