East Coast A-10 Demo Team visits the Henley's - An Indy Transponder note
When we read things like this, we're glad to be part of the aviation community! East Coast A-10 Demo Team - YOU ROCK!  On behalf of those of us who'd like to, but can't - thank you for visiting the Henley's and spending some time with them!  From the Henley blog on Caring Bridge:
We had a great night last night with East Coast A-10 Demo Team who just finished performing at the Tuscaloosa airshow!  They drove up to Birmingham and I made a big pot of Jambalaya and we all hung out and had such a good time!   Every mom should be so lucky to have dinner with a group of fighter pilots, (and Johnnie's, aka "Dusty's" awesome wife, Angela), for Mothers Day!!!  Alan and I had so much visiting with all of them and the only bad part of the night is that it went by much too fast!  Being part of the Heritage team is something Alan will always treasure and it is nice that even though Alan can't fly with them, they still make him feel part of the team.  .... I really want to thank the A-10 team again for such a great night!  You guys are one class act and we are proud to be part of such a great team!  Smoke on!!!  Love and blessings, Jen
