Default RAF Pilot and RV-3 driver

Dennis Cullum passed in June 2018. He learned to fly in a Tiger Moth and graduated to an RV-3 he build 20 years ago. In between he had some Meteor time with the RAF. Dennis was a member of EAA Chapter 14 and was a true gentlemen, offering his assistance without request. He helped me with my RV-3 and I was nearly the completion of my condition inspection and hoped we would have some formation time. I guess that will have to wait. Blue Skys Dennis.

Dennis was also the channel navigator in the 1959 Arch to Arch race from London to Paris.

I knew dennis a little bit, I always would approach him and talk RV stuff. I had a few really good conversations with him in the short time I knew him, I was always trying to get him to sign a copy of RVator that I have where his picture is in and he is the featured article for that months issue. I missed that approach.
guess that will have to wait. travel on dennis
