    2011 was a mixed year for many of us. I pause to remember friends and acquaintances lost during 2011:

    Seamus McCaughley -Aerobatic pilot, mechanic, builder
    [​IMG]

    Amanda Franklin -Wing Walker and Aviatrix
    [​IMG]

    Mark Matye -Pilot, businessman and great friend
    [​IMG]

    Jimmy Leeward -Reno Air Race pilot
    [​IMG]

    Ken Terry- T-34 Pilot
    [​IMG]

    Jack "Flash" Mangan - Trojan Horsemen Display team member
    [​IMG]

    Some of these folks I only knew through e-mail and associations, others I knew personally and had flown with.

    Blue skies and tail winds to them all. They were all upstanding people and deserve to be remembered. I know I will miss them.

    Please add anyone you want to remember who went west in 2011.
