Default We lost another modeler today

I'm sad to share that Gus Hudson passed away this afternoon while at the model field.
He was a long time modeler and great friend.
He will be missed.

This was taken on Saturday at the 40th Greater Southwest Jet Rally.
Gus was CD of the Greater Southwest for a couple of years

May God bless my brother Gus. We met at the Byron bash in 1985 and have been the best of friends since then. My heart is broken.

Cheryl and I send our condolences to TonaSue, Frank, Amy, Hudson and the thousands of people whose lives were touched by Gus.

That's a real shame. Gus flew at Elk City OK with us several times. First flying formation with a Christian Eagle and then switched to the jet. He and Tom put on a great show and both were willing to share their time and knowledge.

Rest in Peace Sir!!!
