CURTIS AND "FOUR PAPA SIERRA"
Here's where another little adventure got its start-- at the Casparis Airport in Alpine, Texas, one of my favorite haunts. The pilot, Curtis (seen here), and his assistant, Howard, had stopped in to refuel N104PS, known in radio lingo as "Four Papa Sierra" (the last three digits of its N-number), and I just happened along shortly afterward. I got to chatting him up and the next thing I knew, I'd gotten myself invited along for a flight the next day -- if the park was going to need him to fly a patrol sweep, that is. Turned out it did, and we were set.
