Squadron 17, Dave Burdine’s Mig

Read this thread on ASB for details.

I bugged a few people at the Indy Air Show to invite Dave back last year.  I’m going to really miss reading about Dave’s performances on the circuit.  Here’s what I posted on ASB:

I saw this thread title and dropped a jaw! Man, this year has been very difficult. I hadn’t met Dave personally, but I swapped a few emails with him over years. He performed here in Indy in 2004 (or was it 2005?) – anyway – I was really impressed and sent Dave an email saying so. He replied! And then was nice enough to stay in touch. His demo in the Mig was fantastic! Another amazing performer that will be sorely missed.

I’ll try to update this post later with photos I have of Dave and his plane as a tribute.

9/5:  Update as promised.  Added photo of Dave’s plane at the 2005 Indianapolis Air Show

9/9: Some info abut Dave from his website.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
