Ha. That man has done more with airplanes than most dream about. I still can't believe he repossessed a Lear from Sandanistas on their home field! Crazy man.

You must be referring to Gary Zigger Cubes, that man has nerves of steel, this guy can pull some stunts let me tell ya, on a scale of 1-10 for being politically correct, he falls in around a negative 5!! He's a real good guy, fits in with our crowd like a nut on a bolt. What can I say, he is an honest American, he hates oppression ...................Dan

By the way, he took the bird from the Santanistas, there is not much tellin what else he took em for either, I wouldn't be surprised if he called em and told em to meet him there, so they could watch him steal the jet!!!! Dan

I did not meet the man at KVIS , but he must have a butt load of stories to tell . Maybe next year at KVIS ? BTW I was watching the Hotel TV and they had a program called Aircraft Repo . One repo was of a Lear...maybe the same guy from KVIS ? Crazy program . Do not leave your keys in the aircraft !

Cubes, I want to thank you for the humbling lesson of Formation Flying, it was definitely an eye opener. My hat goes off to all that fly formation. Thanks again, Ira

He is a character. I hope I'm half the pilot he is when I'm 75.
You are welcome, Ira. I enjoyed it. It just takes some practice.
