“Sad to report:
“I am sorry to inform you that we lost a great friend, William T. Larkins, 1922-2021, this past Thursday. He was the last of the well-known vintage aviation photographers and historians and he will be missed by all that knew him. Due to COVID restrictions his funeral will be private for his family only.”
