Wow, that family is beautiful. What a story. It brought a tear to my eyes. Especially Thomas.

I used to know Tom Wilkinson. WTG Tom. WTG.


I knew Tom when he was a Captain at his previous airline. He was my favorite.

Greg Luganous

I once knew a Tom Wilkinson. Great swimmer back in his day.

Reynieshia Rogers.

I also knew Tom when he flew out of Denver. He the best.

I've known this family for over 16 years. They've inspired me. Nine sons. Nine eagle scouts. Nine honorable LDS missions. In fact, I believe their daughter served an LDS mission, too. What an outstanding family!

I always wished that Tom would sleep in the garage so that I could attack him, but.....he always out witted me and slept on the couch. :)

Way to go pilots, you are awesome!!! Nice work.

J'ai d'abord rencontr Tom quand il a vol en Russie. Il est un homme stupfiant.

Thurl Bailey

Wow. As a convert to the Church, I'm inspired by families like this.

Iaf zuerst Tom, als er auf einem Aufenthalt hier war. Er ist ein erstaunlicher Mann!

The story of this family so inspiring. It is like a Nutrisystem commercial.

The Wilkinson boys probably had 500 model airplanes hanging from the ceilings in their home. I think an "obsession" with flying might be more accurate than mere "passion." The trampoline they had in the back yard introduced many of us to flying...and bad landings.

I knew Tom in my Salt Lake Singles Ward. I never knew he was to passionate about das flugzeug. Good luck Tom!

Love the article!!! I am one of the lucky sis-in-laws who married one of the 9 boys. They truely are an amazing family. They all love & care about eachother deeply. They are not perfect but pretty close! I am blessed to have married into such a great family. (BTW there are still 3 of them that are single! And they are GOOD guys!)
