    Rumor was it was Skip. I never saw the remains for proof, did anyone out there. I know he did catch a buzzard in "Shangri La" with an Air Classics writer on board.
    My dad once told me a similiar pillow strike story, but his involved a C-130 and a too tall tree....

    Yeah, Skip hit the jackrabbit back in '81 in Jeannie. The following year he had a buzzard-strike while he was racing Shangri-La...which was the race that Michael O'Leary was riding along in the back seat for.

    But dang, just ain't as good as Lefty hitting that fence post.
