EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedWorld's Largest Get Well Card at Oshkosh
Talk about your great timing…As aerobatic pilot Alan Henley lay in his Alabama hospital bed last Saturday morning recovering from his severe injuries in a non-aviation home accident, a computer was brought into the room. About an hour later, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team Lead took cyber-delivery of the world's biggest get well card that read, "Get Well Alan." It was not exactly how they planned it, said Steve Oliver, who teams with wife Suzanne Asbury-Oliver as the Oregon Aero SkyDancers team. "We didn't know till hours later that Alan and (his wife) Jennifer watched the skywriting in real-time," he said. "Our original intent was to capture it in photos and video to send to them to cheer them up. But the way everything came together was incredible! At that moment, everyone on the grounds, in addition to the aerobatic community, was thinking of Alan and wishing him well." A foundation to help defray Alan's medical expenses has been established.
