Hangar Talk with a Tuskegee Airman

My buddy Jake and I flew up to Keller Field in Port Clinton, Ohio (KPCW) last Thursday for lunch at the Tin Goose Diner. As we waited for our food, a gentleman came up to our booth to compliment our ride, N914E — as is often known to happen. It is a great looking Van’s RV-7A that Jake’s dad built in his garage.  We had a very pleasant conversation about the RV and flying. Then Jake & I proceeded to fill our pie holes. It was only on the way out that we learned that gentleman was Dr. Harold Brown, one of only forty living members of the 450 Tuskegee Airmen. What a great honor to meet him and come that close to history.
