Foo foo, you got it right in your earlier post; 501 was the AT-11. SN-1B (Snib) was the glass bubble navy version in your picture.

I have (or had) some video of wingwalking/plane to plane transfer crazy shit using Snib at Athol in probably mid-80's. Remember that? I'm sure you and Lee were flying those loads, right? I suppose it could've been Joe.

Is Ricardo still in Athol? How's he doing? Emmett's still in Garwood and doing fine if you didn't know.

Fred's right (Hi dude) the N number - I looked back. I wasn't flying the "transfer" - was there though. I was low man on the pilot pole back then. I believe I remember that it was Lee that made the transfer - right? Out the door, out the leading edge to the wingtip, then over to that moving target of a vertical stab. After a couple attempts, success. Crazy shit is right. Haven't seen that video in many, many moons. I think the last time I pushed you out (Ted) was a moonlit night over Spirit Lake - the full moon lit up the canopies - one of my favorite visions. Very surreal. Might also have been a night formation load over Joe Alby stadium.... scary shit too. Richardo is still in Athol. We talk once in a while. Need his e-mail?

I recognize Florea, Rozo, and Anderson from the pic posted on 1-16-08 at the door of the DC-3. In fact, I think I was at that boogie in Kalispell. I jumped down at Moscow, Idaho mostly (Palouse Parachute Club). It was always a big thrill to drive up to Athol and jump with the likes of Morrow, Jeff Wragg, Brad Dunkin, Rozo, etc. I should go through my old photos. Just took the sport up again a year and a half ago. Up to about 600 jumps. First 20-way last summer at Skydive Chicago! If Emmet reads this, I still have that red and white jumpsuit - you sold it to me at about the time that picture was taken. Anyone know how to get in touch with Joel Anderson?
