If you notice the list of authors, Terry Welshans has joined the team. Terry is an eclectic kind of guy, who is interested in just about everything. I have known him for a couple of years. He is a long-time aviator, and would much rather be flying than almost anything else.
Both practical and sentimental, he is a genuine Gearhead, First Class. He is in the process of restoring an old airplane engine with a nameplate that says “September 1921.” He didn’t send me a picture, but described it a looking more like a tractor engine than something you would put into an airplane. His next project is to take the remains of three salvaged Wright-Hispano H2/3 engines and build one functional engine from the parts. I am green with envy, because I always wanted to build a full sized replica of the famed World War One SE-5a fighter, which used the Hispano-Suiza engine. I even have the plans in my workshop.
Terry is just starting out in this blogging business, and still learning how the WordPress system works. His avatar picture is of his Cessna 172 plane, which he has been flying for decades.
His first post is just below this introduction. He titled his piece, “Can Occam’s Razor Still Cut?”
Terry ruminates on the relationship of conspiracy theories as applied to aviation, racism, war, terrorism, and the current political scene. See? I told you he had eclectic views.
Drop in and leave a comment if you find he has something interesting to say. Just don’t ask him for an opinion about the “Oxford Comma.”
