Last Friday I published the obit of Chuck Doyle, one of the most colorful pilots in Minnesota’s history (you may remember him as the guy who flew a plane into a house at the Minnesota State Fair). Chuck held court at the South St. Paul airport on Saturdays, telling old stories and now the Experimental Aircraft Association has made it permanent, publishing this segment of its “Timeless Voices of Aviation” series.
