Lymburn's Sawbones Column

Tom Lymburn is a well known aviation historian and air show announcer in the mid-west, and particularly well known in EAA circles, having attended EAA's AirVenture for over 35 years. He's also a long-time Sawbones team member, and can be found at the merchandise table at the Reno Air Races sharing his knowledge of aviation history and Sawbones. In this column, he shares some of that vast knowledge and detail as it pertains to Sawbones, the Hawker Sea Fury, and air racing.
