Thanks to the Taliferro Family for donating the following aircraft to our club!
The Taliferro family made this very nice donation in remeberance of John Taliferro who passed on December 25, 2013. These aircraft need a little bit of work to make them flight ready. If you are interested in working on them please contact Charlie Campbell at 325-651-8027or email at email@example.com. These aircraft will be used as trainers for our club members.
