@ 25 feathers from the Melanistic Mutant Pheasant Rooster. These feathers, @ 1 – 3 inches in length, are brilliant greens and purples and blues in direct sunlight. They look black at first glance, but they are magnificent when turned in the light. The tips are where the action is, and the rest of the feather shaft is fuzzy and warm.

Now Available on Amazon.com!

“When No One Else Would Fly” is the aviation history biography of my grandfather, Col. C. J. Tippett and is now available on Amazon.com.

Tip’s passion for flight began the first time he saw a barnstormer in the sky over his hometown of Port Clinton, Ohio.

He wrote a memoir of his amazing civil and military aviation life, and I turned it into a book. My first book was about how I came to have so many feathers… and this is my second book!

Check it out on Amazon.com!

“….. Col. C. J. Tippett was an extraordinary aviation pioneer who took himself from working class origins to one of the highest leadership positions in international civil aviation. Between 1929 and 1961, he logged over 10,000 hours of flight time and piloted more than ninety-eight different types of aircraft. In an untiring pursuit for access to aircraft, and in his commitment to civilian flight safety, Tip climbed into the cockpit when no one else would fly. Tip trained some of the earliest Flying Tigers, certified the first class of Alabama students who would become the Tuskegee Airmen, and shared a boarding house with Major Tooey Spaatz and Major Ira Eaker as they made plans for war. He made record-setting solo flights over the Amazon Jungle in 1943 and fished for black marlin with Ernest Hemingway in Cabo Blanco, Peru in 1956. When sixteen-year-old Tip saw his first airplane in an Ohio field in 1929, he knew that he must learn to fly. He didn’t know that he would become the first Director of the South American Office of the International Civil Aviation Organization. Or that he would live in an elite world of political leaders, millionaires, socialites, and celebrities. When Tip finished his memoir, he encouraged his granddaughter, Corinne Tippett, to turn it into a book. Because by the end of his life, he knew that he’d made history…. “
