When I was a kid, I lived in house along Hwy 82, just across from Gainesville Municipal Airport. Vern would always roar right over the house and waggle the wings of his P51.
The sound of that engine was remarkable. Some weekends, he and a buddie, (I don't recall his name), who had a Corsair would stage mock dog fights out over the area. I spent many hours watching them fly and later learned to fly, because of them.

Wonderful memories!

It's always a pleasure talking with you. I decided to post per our conversation today. I check here occasionally to see names from my youth. Since finding site several years ago I've been contacted and keep in touch with several others. HM was a big part of my life growing up. I was the youngest ever to attend LDIY at the High Valley Ranch. Its interesting how my illness at LDIY inadvertently taught me I could achieve and overcome any obstacle. Looking back LDIY may not have been as effective had I not gotten sick. WPP flew me from Clearlake to Frisco at the time. My father often took me when he traveled for HM, probably why I enjoy traveling today. I remember the eagles, Bills office and desk, the dock and boat from his office dock to the Principia. I have a picture of the Principia and the Free Enterprise hanging in my office. Toni Milano recently sent a note book with most if not all the issues of the Wand. Gene Hoffman and I keep in touch. I am writing down all these memories, people and events. Who knows maybe it will be a book. We need that HM optimism today more than ever. Best wishes to everyone here. Thanks Jim

Back in the late 70's I was taking flight lessons from my brother at the Ftc lvd airport which at the time I think the FBO was owned by Max. I spent a lot of time there and got to talk to Max a fair amount. He was a real down to earth guy and easy to talk to. One day I asked what it would take to get a flight in the Boomer just in passing, he replied" Go grab a couple of parachutes out of my office" I don't know how many people get to ride for over an hour of aerobatics in a P-51 but it is a memory I will never forget for as long as I live. When I heard about Max's accident I didn't know how or who to send condolences to but hopefully this will suffice. I remember Mike flying what I remember was a T-34 and seeing him around the airport. I have thought of Max and the Boomer often, Max even gave me a small artist drawing of Boomer that I still treasure. A really great guy, the world could use a lot more like him.

I was a 10 year old on the day. I was with my family in Windsor about to head into a Chinese restaurant for lunch. We stood out the front for a moment watching this aircraft high in the sky. After a while when we were seated inside we heard an almighty loud scream of an engine revving, then silence. Not knowing what the noise was we carried on only to find out that night back home on the news, the plane had crashed.

Ben, How accessible to the general public is the High Valley Ranch these days? Is it still used for conferences and seminars? I’ve been thinking about taking a trip up there and seeing it again. It’s been a long time since I was last there. I hear the Brassfield Winery next door is worth a visit also.

The top picture is with me on the wing. I meet Mr Huismann at Rockford in 1969 and cleaned his Mustang during the week of the EAA fly-in.
They asked for helpers in 1970 for Oshkosh and I submitted my name and he said I would be welcome to look after his plane again. I went
Down by myself in 1970 and was given a flight both years in the Mustang at the end of the week. I still remember the thrill and noise during the
Flight. Just great.

ralph peterson - Thank You!
I crewed on this Mustang for Bob Love in the years just after Jack Hovey had it painted as the Mustang MkIV.
Before that, when it was black, it was known as the "Jello Mold Special" but back then nobody could tell when the Jello molds were installed.
