Famous Flyer In Lufkin

by Ramonica R. Jones

A popular expert flyer will make an appearance at the Angelina County Airport this weekend and the public is invited.

Bruce Bohannon owns and pilots the Exxon Flyin' Tiger. Bohannon has set numerous world records with the aircraft. It's the first homebuilt airplane ever to cruise above 40,000 feet. It's also the fastest piston engine aircraft in the record book.

Bohannon is a Texas native who's been flying the friendly skies since he was 16. He's the special guest at this month's Chapter 1219 Fajita Fly-In.

The meeting starts Saturday around noon.
