Vlado Lenoch Has Gone West

On July 17 we lost one of our dear friends and mentors, Vlado Lenoch. He and his passenger died at an airshow in Kansas during a VIP ride. No cause for the accident has been determined. Vlado mentored the Lima Lima Flight Team for over twenty years and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

ONE MORE ROLL

We toast our faithful comrades
Now fallen from the sky
And gently caught by God’s own hand
To be with Him on high.

To dwell among the soaring clouds
They knew so well before
From dawn patrol and victory roll
At heaven’s very door.

And as we fly among them there
Were sure to hear their plea–
“Take care, my friend; watch your six,
And do one more roll…Just for me.”
