An AirExpo Video…
Many thanks to Pete Rose for sharing his video and photos of AirExpo.
A Word of Thanks
I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to all our volunteers for a job well done!
Over the weekend I was able to make numerous observations that lead me to believe the future of Wings of the North is bright and promising.
As you may know, most of my previous experience with Air Expo was to handle the flight line duties.
This year I was able to spend some time observing other jobs that were being done by the volunteers of Wings of the North.
I observed countless examples of people that gave 150% effort towards completing the task at hand. In many cases it may not have even been their primary job, they just picked up the ball and ran with it!
Thank you volunteers, looking forward to working with you!
Wings of the North
Long time friend of Wings of the North – Vlado Lenoch was lost along with his passenger Bethany Root in P-51D Mustang “Baby Duck” yesterday in a crash in Kansas. Our condolences to both families in this terrible tragedy. We most recently saw Vlado fly Sierra Sue II in a heritage flight with an F-35 at the Duluth, MN airshow in June.
