High Sky Wing Secures President’s Choice Award

The High Sky Wing worked together again and participated in the Odessa Jaycees annual Fourth of July parade. ┬áDespite this being the first foray into parade-dom, the HSW float (and outriders) captured the President’s Choice Award. It was a team effort, but special thanks goes to all those who initiated the idea to participate, restored the 1/3 scale (approximately) P40, and constructed the float.

"No! YOU back up!"

“No! YOU back up!”

"If it ain't broke, don't mess with it."

“If it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it.”

The crowd was thrilled (?) with the daredevil antics of the High Sky Wing Bandits.
