Father Raymond McDaniel of St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Lewisville, TX.
Father paid a visit to Meyer Aircraft on Friday, February 7, 2014.
Tommy Meyer was delighted at the opportunity to show Father Raymond this work of art crafted through the gifts God bestowed on George Meyer.
Pat Quinn paid a visit to Tootville. Pat is a member of St. Philip parish in Lewisville, TX. He is the director for an upcoming ACTS retreat for men (September 2014). Tommy is a member of Pat's team. A couple of Tootville visitors will be attending this retreat.
ACTS is an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Ask Tommy what it's all about. He'd be delighted to answer all of your questions.
That's Daniel McCarthy, son of Mike McCarthy, an ACTS brother of Tommy.
Daniel had a great time getting into the cockpit of Little Toot and being taxied about.
Ashley checks out Big Toot for size in Tommy's workshop.
Walter merely taxied 61G around 52F, getting the feel of the plane. Notice the great photography from Tommy, capturing the propeller in motion to create the illusion that the prop is curved, when of course, it is not.
