Case 278    Friday 23 Feb 2018 by Phil Schneider
I met Steve Schulke in 1965 when I joined Paragators at the Kissimmee Airport. He became a good friend and he ended up being my dentist. What a great dentist. I made many jumps with Steve around Florida. I also jumped at Steve's home in Winter Park when he lived on a lake. His wife Peggy was as nice as he was. I left the Orlando/Kissimmee area about 1968 to head to Florida State University. I lost track of Steve after that. One time when I was home in the mid to late 70s visiting my mother in Winter Park, Florida, my mom gave me a newspaper article about Steve's aircraft accident. Steve was a wonderful guy.

I remember Vern when I was young and he lived near O Hare in Bensenville. My dad met Vern when he was flying out of Midway.
I had the privilege along with my dad and sister flying with Vern on A DC 10 for American around Chicago back in 1972.

My apologies, it was 1977 that Doc and I made the trip to OsKosh.

Case 17    Wednesday 10 Jan 2018 by Rick Sawyer
I knew Doc well, and flew with him on occasions. I also owned a B-25J N2849G. I kept this Mitchell at the east T-hangars in Cedar Rapids, Ia. next to Doc. In 1980, I flew my Mitchell to OshKosh with Doc off my wing. Near Rockford Il, the right engine failed and had to make an emergency landing at Rockford. We were sitting on the ground there, me covered in engine oil and a filter plugged with filings, while Doc laid on the wing of his mustang. He said "get used to this because if you have time to spare, fly warbird air".
One of the saddest day in my life was his funeral in Marengo. The warbird flyover brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful individual he was.

Case 6    Thursday 28 Dec 2017 by Chief Rick
Bill was a very close friend of my father's. His passenger that fateful day was Cliff Hellwig. A high school friend of mine's father. Both of these gentleman (among others) put a lot of time into this aircraft. Knowing Bill as being meticulous, I'm buying off on the COOLANT LINE failure. My dad was first on scene with airport fire equipment. He said the aircraft was to join a formation with two other aircraft headed to Edwards when the accident occured. This 51 had a lot of TLC prior to the crash. The coolant line story seem's reasonable. It was reported that GLYCOL was impregnated into the helmet liners. (reported a number of month's later. Agency involved unknown).

Plus I have always wanted all these years to contact Greg McGinnis ...I never apologized for locking him in a steamer trunk.

I did a search on this because recently I worked for a guy that his father worked for HM. His boss owns a P-51. I mentioned Patrick's plane and found out his dad worked for him.
