Lost a good friend Sunday.
One of my original Oshkosh buddies passed away yesterday, 3-29. Dick Walling of Muscatine, Iowa was a Corporate Pilot, Flight Instructor and tow-plane pilot. He generously invited me and my dad to sleep in his camper in 1973 and again in '74 up at Oshkosh. He traded a belly-cleaning for two rides in his Waco CSO. He was a kind and generous man. I'll miss him. Dick was 79.
