The Vintage Wings family is a nucleus of people who share in the joy and delight of seeing the fruits of their labour unfold as each plane is restored, each veteran is honoured and each new member walks through the front doors marvelling at the magic of it all.
Surrounding this family are the people who make us whole and complete. Those are our loved, the spouses, partners, children, and grand-children that give us a sense of pride. Often the stories of our own family stay at home as we bravely go about our daily chores. But we should all rejoice and embrace in the accomplishments of those family members because it is through their journey that we get our strength, which, in turn, lends itself to determination and commitment to the organization we call Vintage Wings.
This is a success story of one of "our family" worth sharing.
