James was a great ballonist and balloon friend. I learned a lot from him. He died of a heart attack at a much too young age, leaving behind him my good friend, Barbara, and their 3 children.
A flying friend from LSC Babenhausen.This picture was taken at my 50th birthday party. Karl-Heinz was a fun person… always smiling! He let me steer his plane a few times during my early years at LSC Babenhausen. It was a shock
Horst Neunhöffer und Karl Kapp
Flying friends from LSC Babenhausen
Karl was one of my first flight instructors and Horst a very good flying buddy, at the Luftsport-Club Babenhausen. In 1987 they flew the power-glider Taifun on a trip to Greece and Yugoslavia. On their return trip, while flying over the Alps, they got into bad weather and crashed near the town of Ruhpolding.

Thorsten was my main Balloon

A flying friend from LSV Worms
Harald was one of my flight students. As a tax accountant he gave me many tips and saved me a lot of money. He was one of the biggest supporters of my English classes and was also one of the first to pass my English exam. Harald, you are missed!
A flying friend from LSV Worms as well as instructor
Manfred was one of the flight instrutors in Worms, primarily for UL’s. He was a great dancer! He danced with me at my 50th birthday party. It was so much fun and I have it on Video! Yes!! I recently found out that he died in the summer of 2018 of cancer.
A very dear flying friend from Walldürn u.a.
Thomas (Tommy) was a flight instrutor in Walldürn. primarily for Segelflug. He introduced me to Glider Aerobatics. He was a Judge at various competitions. I accompanied him to Venlo, Holland, for the world championship. It was a very horribly organised competition! He was a very active pilot but at one time he gave it up….no one knew why. I think he was already suffering health problems but didn’t tell anyone, not even me.
