I wonder if he's maybe recruited a second pilot like Greg Colyer has done. I know Jerry has several Vampires based throughout the U.S.

On a side note, I just realized that the picture for Kyle Fowler on the performers page is one I took at Sun N Fun in April. I sent a folder to Kyle after the show and I've seen the particular pic show up on his website and a few other shows' websites on their performer pages. Just thought that was kinda neat. :lol:

Stay safe,
Josh Walker
