Robert was hired by United Airlines in 1997 after 8 years with a commuter airline, retiring in 2014.
Robert has been interested in the 118th TRS and reconnaissance P-51’s since 2000 when he found out that his uncle had served with that squadron as the armament officer and, as an artist, had designed the “Black Lightning” markings worn by their airplanes in China. Robert’s research into the Tac-R P-51’s has shown him how much misinformation has been published and posted on line about these airplanes. His goal is to provide updated information about these airplanes.
A keen modeller since childhood. He is mainly interested in aviation from the times of the First and Second World Wars. He made about a hundred models, wrote a few books and several dozen articles.
