Lynn, and her partner, Mike Jones, found their love of aviation by volunteering at their local airshow. Since that beginning in 2007, they started Buzz Around, Inc. and have provided event management, logistics services, lodging & transportation management, hospitality, and accounting operation & management at hundreds of airshows across the country. Working with the Disabled American Veterans Aviation Outreach Program for several years afforded them the opportunity to become familiar with warbirds and meet many of the warbird owners and operators. Becoming involved in NWOC
seemed to be a natural fit. Lynn & Mike live in southern Indiana and love to travel serving the airshow community.
