Hi Buz,

That's amazing - I know Kevin well and have trained a few of his lifeboat crew in media work. Nice chap, flies a very pretty plane. It is really a small world!

Best wishes,

Hi Buz

I flew F-86 Mk V1 from 60- 63 out of Marville France; met a few F 100 at that time. "Those were the days my friend".
