IT Guy Can Fly!

The FAC’s Information Technology (IT) Guru, Rick Pendzick was awarded the FAC Blue Max at the September Outdoor Contest at Pinkham Field in Connecticut.  Of course, Pinkham Filed is the birthplace of the modern-day Flying Aces Club and John Stott presented the medal to Rick.  These photos are by Tomm Nallen II and in a recent Facebook video posted by John Koptonak, the awardee was serenaded by Vance Gilbert and the rest of the Pinkham Field Irregulars with a chorus of “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”.  Congratulations, Rick!

Bob Gourdon – Superior Props – Passes

Today I received news that Bob Gourdon, the long-time and second owner of Superior Props passed away in early September.

I didn’t know Bob well, but I had met him a couple of times when we purchased Superior Props from him in January of 2014.  He is in the kanone database with two kanones.  Here is a photo of Bob with my dad and me when we went to pick up the business in 2014.  Bob is on the right.

Here is a link to his obituary:  https://obits.nola.com/us/obituaries/nola/name/robert-gourdon-obituary?pid=200161094
