Larry Green is a guy from Reading, Pennsylvania in the USA.
Larry loves planes but most importantly Larry loves classic twins, including the Beech 18 and the A-26 namely the On Mark conversion. Over the next few weeks this site will display some of amazing shots Larry has generously supplied for your enjoyment on this site.
Larry also has a buddy who used to fly OnMarks corporately, namely  N726W and 100Y when they were newly refurbished and I hope to post these shots along with some stories for your enjoyment...Thanks Larry and keep them coming.
