Pictured is our own Jim Tausworthe wearing his Army Air Corps, 405th Bomb Squadron uniform. Jim was assigned to both the North American B-25 and Douglas A-26. He is shown here with his radio controlled Squadron B-25 replica complete with accurate squadron markings and nose art. Jim is a published author and artist. He has published five aviation novels and eight mystery novels. Having Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.) has kept Jim from taking to the air the last few years. However, he has logged over eight thousand hours of flight time (he joined EAA in 1966 with a membership number of 30768). Most warm afternoons, he and his wife Millie can be found at the Houston Airport Radio Control Club area flying one of his many radio controlled aircraft.
Jim’s aviation novels include The 405th, The Last Chase, Gods of the Pylon, A Long Road to China and Through the Eyes of the Tiger. His mystery novels feature main character Cade McCane and include A Thursday Game, Lemonade Lady, The Golden Unicorn, Voodoo’d, Dame Fortune Wears Black, Murder on the Cone Johnson, The NASA Connection and The Rules of Homecoming. All of Jim’s novels are available from the chapter library. See Phyllis White for details. If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit with Jim and Millie, take the time to seek them out at a chapter meeting or Saturday morning breakfast at Ron’s hangar. Their biographies may be found in the archived chapter newsletter, May 2002.
