The Lumpkins

    Nope ... it wasn't "dat puddy tat" ... it was probably Phil Lumpkin (shown left below) in his bright yellow and white Sky Ranger light sport aircraft, which he named "Tweety Bird"   He even has a Tweety Bird painted on the tail (see right below). Phil recently earned his sport pilot license. Phil is also often seen piloting a bright yellow golf cart around the airpark.
