Deciding it was time to downsize, Bruce Goode, a retired cattle ranch owner and airline pilot, purchased a small, 8-acre equestrian estate in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada.

John's 360° Coatings Hangar

He mainly applies his two-part formulations to planes, working out of a newly built hangar in Bolton, MS.
