Globe Swift N80772 s/n 175 was completely rebuilt in 1964 by 13th owners Dick and Jeanie Collins. 772 has been in at least 45 states and 5 Canadian provinces and is probably one of the few Swifts to fly north of the Arctic Circle. Dick holds Commercial SMEL, CFI, helicopter, and A&P ratings. Jeanie has a commercial SEL. Both have been licensed for over 50 years.

The Collins were early members of the Northern Calif Swift Wind. Jeanie was newsletter editor for many years. Dick retired from Hiller Helicopters experimental flight test and is always available to help solve Swift problems. 772 is hangared at San Jose.
Here is Life Member Bob Rooman flying his pride and joy, N4189F, over Santa Clara Valley around 1966. That is Mt. Hamilton under the stab.

Bob was SCCAA president in 1964 and 1980. Bob now lives in Springfield, MO.

The Pettys are veteran plane campers and have camped and visited numerous back country airports in Idaho as well as other western states, Canada, Oshkosh, and who knows where else?
