The Conqueror

Stephen Chapis offers another history lesson with the story of aviation legend Darryl Greenamyer. Equally comfortable in a J-3 Cub at 65 miles per hour as in a Lockheed A-12 at 2,000 miles per hour, what Greenamyer loved most was racing around the pylons in a Grumman Bearcat. As a pioneer in the sport, intense competitor, and a pilot with natural abilities, he truly earned the title“conqueror.”
