Default Paul H. Poberezny

PHP flew West this morning. He was(and is) a legend in aviation. I built airplanes with him on weekends at the "airplane factory" for five years and often crossed swords with him during the next five years as EAA Museum Director. He never waivered from his dedication and perseverance. Tailwinds my friend.

Very sad news for aviation. I grew up close to Oshkosh and was able to meet Paul several times over the years...an inspiration to the pioneers of aviation.
