    I went to Amarillo to visit relatives earlier this year. Folks at the museum said they only have the airplane because the owner promised it would never fly again. Probably a good thing, because everything I've read and seen indicates to me that it was a bad airplane.

    That airplane has always had bad luck surrounding it. Its been rumored to have had an engine failure due to an unintentional bullet from some gang activity on Roscoe Blvd that somehow found it's way into way to the oil system as it sat in a hangar at Van Nuys. I have no idea whether or not any of that story is true.

    Randy,
    Speaking of "Mr. Awesome", your dad was an awesome pilot, aviator and person. I fondly recall the great flying and racing we did. I always trusted Al! I consider it an honor to have been able to fly and race with him!
    Happy New Year and best wishes.
    Sincerely,
    Randy
