Long time CAF Colonel and the man who helped fly FIFI out of China Lake back in 1971, Randy Sohn, has flown west. Please take a moment to watch this video from his induction to the CAF Hall of Fame to learn a little about a remarkable man who will be dearly missed.
Randy Sohn was a Minnesota aviation, warbird, and CAF legend. He flew most every warbird we see gracing the skies today, including the B-29 FIFI out of China lake. Randy was a wonderful teacher and passed along his warbird knowledge in the form of his warbird notes. Blue skies Randy.
