    * WE HAD GOOD DAYS *



    Trowbridge "Trow" Sebree 1904 - Oct. 18, 1998


    *

    [the following is from Trow's nephew Stephen]

    Gary ........I love your web page and am particularly grateful for your tribute to my Uncle Trow Sebree, he was beloved by us all and influenced many, my father was 10 years younger than Trow and made a good career in aviation. I would visit Trow when ever I was in NW Florida and would sit for hours as he told stories....and they were pretty spectacular, my first memory of him was in New Orleans when he had Al Hirt in his pool blowing beer out of his trumpet. My last was his Wake in Destin 40 years later......my Dad saw it all but we lost him in 92. Sebree hated funerals the last one he went to was my Mom's in 69......Gi Gi ,Trow's daughter picked me up at Eglin and was on the cell looking for a pilot.......half way home she had both pilot and aircraft. The Wake started at noon and soon a battalion of blue blazers and Ray Ban's arrived with miniature wings in their lapels....they identified themselves as QB's "Quiet Birds" an organization of retired pilots.......after awhile there was the rumble of a well tuned V8 in the drive and I looked out to see a 1970 hemi Cuda convertible with the quintessential Joe Cool at the wheel and his babe......my cousin announced from the balcony the pilot had arrived. Trow's ashes were in a container on the piano........GiGi announced that the flyover would be in 35 min and she handed "babe" the box with her father's remains.....as Babe tucked Sebree under her ample haltered bosom there was an audible sigh from the Blazer Boys and me...she was sweet. A half hour later a red Pitts acrobatic biplane flew over the house and did a gentle roll as it cleared the beach out to the gulf......as the plane rolled Babe released our friend to the wind.......the QB's were on the dock with glasses held high to the West.......as the sun never sets on a westbound flight.

    Sincerely,

    Stephen Trowbridge Hinman

    [the following is from Trow's daughter Gigi Sebree Hall]

    Gary,

    I just found the web site and enjoyed it immensely. I especially loved seeing my father at the picnic and the article that Bill wrote in the Daily News. I didn't know that my cousin Steven had written you. The days after Daddy passed were a blur, I was glad someone took notice of the events that day. I remember my fathers favorite shirts were with big flowers (we called them Hawaiian shirts) a lot of people wore them. After the fly over with my Dad's ashes, the QB's had a small ceremony and presented my Mother with a pair of wings. It was all very touching. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and remember the fun times growing up with him. I was so blessed to have such a wonderful and fun Dad. Mother is doing well and I know Daddy is still with her because I'll hear her yell at him at least once a day with something like "SEBREE...can you believe I have cows in my front yard!!!", Daddy loved cows and we moved to West Texas in the country or when the crop duster comes within 20 feet of the house..."SEBREE!!! are you making him fly that close just to say HI!!!". He is truly alive and well living in our hearts.
    Looking at some of the items...I recognized the model planes and other articles from his collection. I'm so glad everyone gets a chance to see these items. I would love to bring my daughter to see the Museum in person. Could you give me some details on how to get there, where to go, where to stay...things of that nature. (See note %%%)
    Again...thank you for such a wonderful web site. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Viscount N7437 was manufactured on Aug. 8, 1956 and delivered to the airline at a later date. This crash is interesting in that it was originally attributed to pilot error. A few years later a similar fatal incident occurred (CO290 29jan63 MAF-MKC) and the CAB revised their findings (1965). Buildup of undetected (horn type) ice on the horizontal stabilizer caused the aircraft to pitchover and thus created an uncontrollable flying condition.
