I just read this tonight. Sad to see such a longtime warbird owner/operator/racer/entertainer leave us...

Lefty Gardner Obituary (http://www.legacy.com/statesman/Obituaries.asp?Page=LifeStory&PersonID=121868261)

He is best known for his P-38 "White Lighting" that he flew for so many years before it crashed in 2005. The aircraft is now owned by Red Bull.

I met Lefty in 1977 in Harlingen (before they moved)...what a bummer.

R.I.P. Lefty.
