Does anyone remember Doug Hughes. By chance I got to meet him today at a gas station on I-75 north of Tampa. I pulled in for gas and this Pitcairn was parked there. Of course I had to go over and take a look and that's when the owner walked up and the conversation ensued. In the course of the conversation I asked if he knew how to fly gyrocopters or if this was his first. He politely replied "I think I do, I landed one on the lawn of the US Capitol on April 15, 2015". Yes I was in the grace of the mailman who made history that day which was Tax Day. Here is a link to the photo I took and his story. Made my day.
