2020 AMA Carl Goldberg Vital People Award
Started flying models when I returned to Chicago in 1993. Since then I fly anything and everything with the Float Flying being my favorite. My nick name “the Undertaker” came from my taking peoples crashes and rebuilding them. I love the flying, I enjoy the members, it’s just a great hobby. After working at the ORD tower for some 20 years I still enjoy being around planes.
