You might say that aviator Rucker Tibbs has had more than his share of ups and downs over the years.
And so has his favorite plane.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke]


The New London pilot once took his vintage Piper on a trip around the United States.
He flew more than 77-hundred miles.. without lights or a radio.
The plane's on display next month at the Virginia Museum of Transportation, and Tibbs was there today getting things set up.
After this exhibit is over, he and his plane will be back in the air...teaching another generation of pilots to fly.
