David was a tireless ambassador for the Planes of Fame air museum and all around wonderful human being.



Yikes…32 yo LCDR Hangar200 was ship’s company on USS GUAM when it participated in the 50th Anniversary of D-Day off Southhampton and then off Omaha Beach the next morning. It cannot have been that long ago? Could it? :hushed:

Looks like it is going to be a great time! :slightly_smiling_face:


If it makes you feel any better, 15 years ago, EM2 Navynuke99 was about to set sail around South America moving his ship from Norfolk to San Diego. That disturbed me to realize.

Tragic loss of both plane and pilot.
