This photo is, in fact 63810. It was taken at the Fullerton , Calif. Airport on the day I removed it from the Planes of Fame Museum in Buena Park. I had just bought it from Maloney and was taking it to Chino for rebuild.i

This picture is the CAF Gunfighter. Restoration after crash in the late 70s. I would need to check the logs and some of the workers of the time. They are in a hangar at Offutt AFB Omaha. Reg Urschler was Wing Commander. Note the CAF hat worn by one of the guys. Jay Johnson is at the prop. It was his engine. We still use to tow bar in the forground.
Jerry Mason crew chief.

T J Watson had IBM connections when I first met him. Tom Watson was his father who when running IBM helped the Nazis with the Holocaust. IBM supplied punch cards so he Germans could keep track of the Jewish population.

My name is Brad Jackson. I am the son of Frances, Bill Patrick's younger sister. I always got bits and pieces of the story about his death. I'd like to know more now that I am an adult and need to put thing in perspective. I once lived on the High Valley Ranch as a kid for about a year around 1969- 1972, not sure of the exact dates. I remember LDI. Many fond memories of riding motorcycles and hiking up to the Casa Matania , as i think the house up on the hill was called. I remember Jack and Camille Mather. Does anyone have any photos that they are willing to share of Bill, Marie , Lisa and William? Also any of Bill and Marian? All i have are some photos of his lear jet and his home in Tiburon. Uncle Bill used to take me and little William up in his sea plane, We'd land in Clear Lake or close to it if I remember correctly. My second time to California we stayed a few weeks with Marian and Greg in the summer after Bill died. These memories have stayed with me all my life and have intrigued me ever since I was little boy. Brad- email@example.com

Around the mid eighties I had the opportunity to fly with George. Nothing like that experience. He would fly the P-51 to Florida during the winter months. While at the Orlando Executive FBO I had that once in a lifetime chance to climb into that dual control cockpit with George. I was married at the time and my in-laws were the kind that lived their lives at the mercy of the great WarBirds. I witnessed a few.... P-40 was amazing but the P-51 was different... firing up a P-51 engine at dusk to watch the stacks lighting up in succession.
I was a 22 year old girl whose knowledge of WarBirds could fit into a thimble and I was forever changed by that flight. From the beginning as George prepared for take off, his conversation with the tower set the tone for the rest of the flight. The tower did what they normally do and then put in their request for a fly-by. George said something in return to air traffic control that told me we were about to buzz the tower. We did just that, I can't say for certain but I thought I heard the air traffic controllers voice crack as if he was holding back emotions when he thanked George for the aeronautical nod.
My flight was a ride that unfortunately I would not fully appreciate till later. The G-force pulls, the barrel rolls the dives the assents.... none fully appreciated till another date and time. My recollection of George Enhorning was a kind, unassuming man that loved and respected flying. His calm demeanor left me unafraid of every twist and turn and the moments of such force that I could not lift my hand from my lap. His wit as he flipped me and turned me and twisted me had me laughing like a little kid. After a flight like that your life has changed, one I will never forget.
Hearing that George had crashed Passion Wagon was empty news. Made my heart feel empty. These days as I get older and I witness grandparents, parents and friends struggle at the end of their lives I think about George Enhorning and while sad he left this earth far too early, his life ended flying in the most bad-ass propeller driven aircraft and if reports are right, he was able to control the crash away from homes in an attempt to save other lives. My condolences to the loved ones of George Enhorning and the USAF Brig. General that was on board that fateful day.

My Cousin Darleen Schwark married Sol Pusey in 1971 and Aunt Ceil left a few photos of Sol by N7711C while he owned it. I have a few photos of it from that period parked on the ground in CA.
