Commanding Officer
Tom Buck
815-744-1263 (Office)
Tom is among the most dedicated of airplane fans, especially when it comes to warbirds. He either owns or is partial owner of 4 airplanes, two of which are warbirds. He is very active at our events, especially with his TBM Avenger. The crowd never seems to tire of watching the wings unfold or the fly-bys over the airfield. Tom's favorite pastime (after flying) is to engage in discussions with pilots and warbird fans wherever he goes... just ask his wife!

After working the tour stop in 2008, Dave joined the Squadron and continued to participate in many of the events. In recent years Dave has been very active in Squadron 4 promotions through various means of advertisement.
