Default Capt. Henry Skillern

I didn't know the guy, but he should be mentioned. Anybody who gets his picture taken in a cowboy hat can't be all bad. RIP.

Default Flew a trip with him a couple weeks ago

He was a nice guy. SUPER into photography and very knowledgeable. He wasn't one of those guys you fly with then don't remember. It's too bad because he's one of those guys that finally had everything going for him and he didn't even make it to retirement. Blue skies Rocky.
