Historical Things

I plucked this from Tom Phillips‘ fb page. It is a video shown at the Tennessee Tree toppers 1983 Xmas Party, hey I was there in the flying video that is, Thanks Tom 🙂 The following is Tom’s posted text.

Here is an early present for all my flying friends. I literally found this in the attic. It’s rough but it’s history so be patient. I had this old VCR tape copied to digital so I could share it. It’s the only copy of the tape that I know of so I hope you enjoy it and share it. Many of you are in this, at least the old geezers among you. I’ll tag the ones I can remember, but I’m one of those geezers so if you see yourself or someone you recognize, let them know. I can’t believe it’s been 33 years, but this was us in our prime. Thanks to Cliff Whitney and Tim Orr for capturing the memories for us.  https://vimeo.com/190178825?ref=fb-share&1
