Wings & Wheels - Dolphin Dunnaha Overton, III Can't Post

I just learned in a roundabout way of the passing of Dolph. If you jumped at Wings & Wheels for free, you have him to thank for it. He received an Honorary Doctorate (Posthumously) from the Citadel in May. For those of you who did not know him, run his name through google. The wiki is also comprehensive.
Dolph was a Korean War Ace.

Blue Skies, Dolph!
Thanks for your service!

What an amazing life he lived. Our country could use a few more people like him...

Have fond memories of Dolf..he had the Wings and Wheels here in Santee, SC in the late 60's and we jumped there every weekend with him footing the TAC time..let us get out of a Tri Motor several times..

I've got a Stinson Detroiter in my logbook thanks to Dolph, but as I recall, he was Mr. Overton.
