Well, if he got shot at the DZ sometime around the same time, it may have been him.

the Reed boys had a disagreement with him, and they were fighting over a gun, the gun "went" off, the bullet went through the bill of the hat pulling his hair out the top of his hat,.. good times

Stop by the hanger today, it was open, they were having "the Mojave Film Festival" out there, no people, they were showing a movie.

I ran into ol' Gordon Foster in the grocery store today. He even had an old Skydive Cal City t-shirt on. Smile

Hi Zig,

Re: Gordon Foster

Do you remember when he ran the ad that said:

If you don't read this ad your ripcord will catch on fire!

I always thought that was some unique advertising. It got your attention, anyway. Tongue

Not sure what DZ it was at, but looks like it was posted about a month ago.


Also, from the Flying-V-Ranch...

Yeah, well, like I said on YouTube... technically, she's been "for sale" for as long as I've known her to be owned by Van Sr or Jr... everything has its price... Wink


Maybe a bunch of us could pool our money... buy her... stick her on a pole at the Ol' Cal City DZ?

I've made too many jumps out of 121PM -- and am too familiar with her history -- to want to see anything but her flying jumpers.

But seriously, if its time for her to go out to pasture, maybe she could be mounted on a stick outside the USPA Skydiving Museum? Wink

There are already plans for an Otter in the museum. But it should be a crashed one, not one that still can fly.
It's not the USPA museum; it's an independent entity, even though it will be next to USPA.

A crashed jump plane... Crazy Sorry, I'm a bit too superstitious about such things. Doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

When I die I'd like to be stuffed and placed into that museum. Maybe in a nice diorama. You know, beer in one hand a joint in the other and a crappy old trailer in the background . . .
