A great trio who are sadly missed...

We had quite a group way back then. I also forgot to mention Boomer's wife.
She spent a LOT of time behind a video camera! Boomer and I became very close after Jackie died. We emailed each other every day while he was in Hospice. His son really went out of his way to get a computer in there so we could email him. We continued that until the day he passed away. I remember spending hours on the phone with Keith during the World Tiger Moth Tour.... trying to figure out where the plane should go next. I have no words to describe Basketcase... he was my friend and mentor... I always planned to go fly with him... but I waited too long. Makes you wonder what he would think of the "new" tigermoth.

On another note.... what the heck happened to Kitty? I haven't seen her on here for a long time. She's another one that was so dedicated to the TM.
