        Marion, R.I.P.
        She was 90, so there's hope for us all!

            I came across this photo I took @ El Mirage in 2017 of Marion, her two daughters (Donna & Linda...which is which?), w/ Christine Toevs in back.

              I got this picture from a local fellow a couple years ago, who was selling his father's Air Command gyro, which was in pieces, because his dad wrecked it. Must not paid enough attention to his CFI's instructions, or, forgot her voice in his memory.

              From back in time: Over 33 years ago, in Tracy, California. Marion teaching in a side-by-side gyroplane. Looks to be Bensen or Brock blades, w/ a MAC engine for propulsion. Can anyone identify how to tell the difference between the makes?

                    My wife Ed took that picture.

                    In my opinion Ed is good at capturing the emotion in her pictures.

                    It was the first time Marion had flown in quite a while.

                    She looked graceful and as comfortable as can be.

                    I learned a lot from Marion about many things.

                    I was proud to fly three generations in The Predator.

                      Marion was a class act. We met and talked at Rotors Over The Rockies a few years ago. She could really hold an audience captive. She sent me a copy of the Gyro movie. I get it out and watch it every now and again.

                      Thanks Marion. It was a pleasure to know you no matter how brief. How cool is that....trading rotors for WINGS!
