FORT BELVOIR, Va. (July 12) — Two local military officers, with a passion for aviation history, spend much of their free time building and flying radio controlled planes modeled after some of the most famous planes to take to the skies during America’s wars.
Retired Navy Cmdr. Bill Blacker, who served for 23 years and currently works at the Department of Homeland Security, and Col. Michael S. Tuomey, Defense Logistics Agency, Fort Belvoir, Army Reserve Element commander and works as a civilian for the Army staff (G-8) at the Pentagon, have discovered an enjoyable hobby that provides them hours of excitement and a welcome break from busy work schedules.
