This airplane brought my wife ans I together. I was flying shows with it and she was a ground handler. (directed parking on ramp) She has been trying to tell me where to go every since.
I do know Bob-his nickname is Snackbar. We flew together a few times. I flew the air shows at Love Field for a few years, but not always in the TBM. I also flew for the CAF and at some shows I flew their airplanes. You must have worked with George Lodge for the Love Field Shows.
Over the years I have kept some airplanes (UC-78, PT-23, Cessna 195 & a Pitts) at Oak Grove before it became Spinks. After it was rebuilt and the City of Fort Worth owned it I kept a U3-A there for awhile. I quit flying about 4 years ago because the insurance got to expensive for what I was doing; Spending 6 month each summer traveling. I took up sailing and am enjoying that as much as flying.
