MAN at Warbirds over Delaware

MAN at Warbirds over Delaware

Even while he’s on vacation, editor Gerry Yarrish wouldn’t miss his favorite event. Recently he stopped by the 27th annual Warbirds over Delaware (WOD) giant scale event in Newark, DE. Talking with the pilots and taking photos of all the action, Gerry was taking notes for our upcoming event coverage that will be published in the December issue of MAN.

AA1A special surprise for Gerry, he won the big raffle prize at the event: a custom painted Spektrum radio case hand painted by Dan Davidson  of Blackbird Finishes. It started out as a Spektrum Radio case, and Dan painted each panel with a different scene all depicting Black Widows, from the aircraft to an amazing pinup. It was the raffle prize at the event.

Also while flying his foamy Mustang Gerry suffered a mid-air but has since repaired his weekend flyer.

Gerry also teamed up with longtime MAN contributor Sal Calvagna who was also busy getting information for the upcoming event report.

And yes, Sal also suffered a foamy mid-air, albeit a bit more serious than Gerry’s.
