    I used to rent Lori’s Citabria and Decathlon at Hobby airport when here school was under or adjacent to, the old Hobby tower. Those planes where her babies.

    I remember one time she took delivery of a Cessna Skylane. One of the first with retractable gear. I was in instrument ground school at the time and they announced that this guy was up in the Skylane and couldn’t get the gear down. He elected to belly in at Ellington because he wanted them to foam the runway. I heard he missed the foam all together. They later came out with an AD on the hydraulic system.
    There are some other antics they pulled but you’ll have to ask Lori about them.

    She closed her flight school and I bought a Grumman so I lost touch with her.

    Those are some of my best flying memories!
