|Founded in 1988, The Lima Lima Flight Team became the first civilian 6-ship aerobatic team through a series of serendipitous meetings and the dedication of the early leaders to excellence in formation flying. The T-34 Mentor may not have been the best airplane for this, since it is woefully under powered for the maneuvers that were created, but it was the best combination of comfort and reliability for the long cross-country trips we took traversing the country from border-to-border and coast-to-coast…….and beyond. The story is told in this enhanced and enlarged print version of the team history, which contains the story of those early struggles and the many trips we took, all illustrated with over 100 color photos in 150 pages. This version is twice a long as the original, published in 2003 (mostly black and white) and includes team history through 2018. It is available on Amazon.com.
