    Gerry was a good friend to Sky Soaring and an active glider pilot earning a Diamond badge.  He owned a DG-300 and a Vultee BT-13 Valiant. 

    He spent his later years working on the B-29 Superfortress “Doc”.  See for details. 

    I fondly remember his “tool box on wheels” which had a trailer hitch in the rear of the vehicle AND ALSO IN THE FRONT!  This came in useful when moving glider trailers around.

    Title: General Discussion, Gerry Sibley


    A good friend of Sky Soaring, Gerry Sibley, has passed away, of heart failure.  Gerry was a valuable member of Sky Soaring.  He owned a glass ship and flew it often.  He left Illinois maybe 15 years ago and moved to Oklahoma City.  There he joined a crew working on restoration of a WW11 bomber.  He will be missed.
