This a photo that I restored in the process of the book that I am working on. I am not sure how this one of Dad ended up here, but I am so very proud. Harry “The Horse” Evans was my father, originator and leadman of the Skyblazers in 1949. He led the team with twins, Buck and Bill Pattillo, as his wingmen, and Dag Damewood, as his slotman, until 1952. John Patrick O’Brien was all around utiliity man and could fill any position if needed but never was. He often flew the number 5 position, as the Thunderbirds do today, and was tragically killed at Manston Air Force Base, England in May of 1952.
Anyone that knew these men or was involved in any way is encouraged and more than welcome to contact me at email@example.com
