Did Magee Really Do That?

Those of you who read my recent series of posts called SevenSierra Whiskey (click on thetitle to jump to it) may remember a name that came up many times in that story—that of Dave Vroom. I thought I'd share with you a story I wrote about Dave and his biplane that appeared in 1997 in Airline Pilot Magazine. (Dave also makes an appearance in Tail of the Storm.) But why would Airline Pilot want its heavy metal drivers to read about a private pilot? Read it and enjoy.

See if you can pick out the error that the editors made, for which I forced them under threat of deadly force to publish a correction.
