Photorecon catches up with Jim Beasley

By: Category: AirshowsUncategorized

I've been carrying this shirt to airshows for many years. I  have gotten autographs from many famous aviators. I had both of the other Horsemen sign the shirt but Jim Beasley had always escaped me. He is a trial lawyer and the last few shows I attended with the Horsemen performing, Jim had to be in court. But not this time. I trapped him down and he obliged with signing my shirt!! Thanks Jim!! Mission Accomplished!!Read More
