As a new member to the Warbird scene I had not met Ray however had seen him fly. Learning of his history I wish now that I had gone up and shaken his hand.

Having watched again the Warbirds over Wanaka DVD, Ray seemed to be the essence of a pilot "Cool Calm and always Calculating"

I loved the expression on his face when he lead the Fighters under the Helicopter wash, calmly looking left, nope wasn't II, looking right, not III, always with a wry smile....

I'll turn an extra blade on Sunday in the Dak and I'm sure that you'll be remembered as a legend!
