Lost & Found, Video Requests, and Theft

Updated 19 January 2023

Lost and Found:

Drones!:  A large and expensive one in very roughly 2019 or 2020, a second in February 2021, and the third in about August 2022.  Two in excellent condition, the large one with a modest tree drop injury. 

Numerous other items, including tripods, portable lights, many sunglasses, hats, umbrellas, many others, and:

A wine bottle corkscrew was lost on my left wing, probably by a neighbor, during our social on Thursday, 21 June 2012.

Contact me and provide sufficient description to retrieve your belongings (no fee of course).

Video requests:  If anyone has a tape of the aircraft being towed through the S 1st Avenue and SE Baseline Street intersections copy would be highly appreciated (at my expense). I'd like to pass a copy along to a small documentary film maker who's interested too.

If anyone has a tape of the aircraft's low pass flyby I'd sure like to hear from you - I'd love to have a copy. Though I have one copy of the landing graciously provided by a gentleman at Aero Air, if any others exist I'd like to acquire a copy of them too. Thanks tons!

Theft at the Fair Complex staging site was a substantial problem for a time. Many tools and a Jeep style gas container were lost. The crook or crooks should be profoundly ashamed of themselves. Beyond the financial losses, the thefts significantly interrupted work crews due to lack of availability of tools and fuel, and those were expensive delays.

If the guilty party should happen to read this, consider this: Your life will ultimately be much more fulfilling if you simply return these items. As the years unfold, personal regrets take a very heavy toll. If you want a brighter future, find the courage to do the right thing, and please do it now. The opportunity to make amends is fleeting. Regrets, however, often never fade and can substantially reduce the quality of life. The question you must ask yourself is: Am I going to be outperformed by most other people - those who manage to live and work with others in an honest and productive manner? Or am I going to just give up and take a cowardly and sad route through life?

Do yourself and me a favor and do the right thing: Return all the items to my driveway or some other drop location and call me anonymously to advise so I can secure them promptly. It'll benefit you personally in subtle but profound ways, potentially setting you on a new life path, and could prove to be one of the smartest things you've ever done. If you don't, you're simply choosing to be a loser.
