IN MEMORY OF MARTY header image


It was with great pain and sadness that we learned of the death of our friend Marty Tibbitts. He died yesterday, when the Venom he was piloting crashed shortly after take-off at Sheboygan County Memorial Airport in Wisconsin.

Marty was a true and enthusiastic supporter of vintage aviation, and his patient advice and friendliness was one of the principal drivers behind the formation of UKHAT. He's pictured above at the controls of Queenie, the ex-Classic Air Force Meteor T7 that he purchased for the museum he formed and supported in Detroit. That huge grin and his effervescent delight in old wings have left behind a huge gap in the aviation world. We take comfort in the thought that he died doing what he loved best.

Our thoughts are with Belinda, his wife, and their children, Cameron, Mason and Julia.
