My Dad was in Air Trash in the 70’s with Richard and Dirty Al (Dirty Ed, Al Frisby). I remember a bunch of the guys and I have a couple of Pics that should be on the page. By the way he was John Patterson and married Bob Butt’s sister Marilee in ’87 or so. He passed in 2008.

By the way he has the blue Cooper Hockey helmet in both pics.

Here is another one of some “Trash”. I believe the “Godflicker” Mike Jenkins took this photo.

Best Regards,

Animal and Sheryl took their motorhome on a cross country road trip stopping and visiting with some
Air Trash along the way.

The photos they sent in can be found on Page 2 of a webpage that Larry Walsh, the founder of AIRTRASH.COM, had made 10 years ago. It's called the Fun Page". A lot of stuff there to see.

Many Thanks to Larry

Subject: 182


We are having problems locating a 182 for Adirondack Skydiving Adventures, located in Fort Ann, New York. Our current aircraft is out of commission. The timing is critical with summer already upon us. We are looking to buy, but a lease will do.

Can you help me to get the word out to all the POPS and SOS members?

Thank you,

Hi Freddy,

Normally when an Air Trash guy gets profiled, it's done by local law enforcement agencies... Ha!

Yea Bully!

Congratulations Bully. Yet another way to get in a cheap plug for Air Trash!

Seems like the Shark Air hit their gas truck on landing, no injuries.

You may have to copy & paste these?

Hey Guys,

In two days Animal and his wife will be here in Central Nevada visiting for a few days while on their cross country trip. Of course I will be doing some photo taking and video during their stay. So keep an eye on my You Tube channel to see what the old buzzard is up to during his visit.

Everything is wonderful here at my new place in the Nevada desert. I love being here. The people are fantastic and my new property is everything I had ever hoped for. To see what I'm up to all you need to do is go to my you tube channel. Always something going on there.

Hope all is well with you guys. Stay safe and blue skies.

There is still plenty of room in the Warm Up weekend and I know there are several who have not yet signed up for the JOS record and the SOS world record. And ladies, please get your registrations in - there are a lot of you who have said you are coming but have not yet registered.

Below is a 1998 Harley Davidson FLHTCI, that belonged to long time Air Trash member Jim Dann, SCR 6. As you know, Jim passed away in August of last year and his wife Donna now has the sad task of selling this beautiful bike.
I picked up the bike and took it to my shop where I put in a new battery, fuel lines, fuel pump, fuel filter, and had the injectors professionally cleaned and tested. The bike had been garaged for the past two years and has just over 32200 miles, most of which are highway miles.
This is an exceptional touring motorcycle. It's never been abused and has been very well maintained.
It has everything you could ask for on a dresser for comfort, list too long to post.

For more photos and information, contact Air Trash at

Donna launches a new website called, with a focus on Novice and new "A" license skydivers.

Donna writes:
"I am Donna Wardean. I started jumping in 1966 at Arvin, California...(the cradle of Relative Work).
In the early days, in the mid 60's, my peers were generous in sharing what they knew aboout RW. How to get from point A to point B (today this genre is formation flying of various types).
Well, they were big,,, I was small. Their advice didn't always translate or work for me but it gave me a place to start. I loved the sport and challenge... and I had a great career! So as others followed me, I paid it forward. My personal passion has ALWAYS been to help people who were young in our sport to Grow, Mature and Flourish. That is something that came naturally to me because my peers, those early RW men... the Arvin Good Guys shared what they knew with me."

This site isn't just for the Novice Skydiver, it's for anyone that wants to buy sell or trade skydiving related gear.

This and other great links can be found on the Air Trash "LINKS" page.

These memorable images, by artist Rob Thundercloud and donated by Tom Sanders are the book cover.

Well, Doug and I have gotten so many requests to do another NSTIWTIWGD book of stories
that we are going to give it a try.

So if you got any you would like to submit to us then email me the story at
