2020-06 RedStar Gathering (FD04)
After three months of no flying due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place due the the novel Coronavirus, the Humble Squadron at Leaward Air Ranch (FD04) in Ocala, FL, hosted the Swamp Thunder Squadron for a weekend of flying and camaraderie. Friday afternoon and Saturday morning were spent doing formation training and qualification flights. We had one pilot (Matt Wallis) receive his formation wing qualification. On Saturday we flew out to the Pyper Cub Cafe & Restaurant at the Williston Municipal Airport (X60) for lunch. On the return we did a nine aircraft Balbo flyover of Leeward Air Ranch. Saturday evening we had a dinner with wives, significant others, and the neighbors at Leeward Air Ranch. As with any Swamp Thunder gathering we ended the evening with our version of the Navy's Fo'csle Folllies - "You Dirty Bastard".
