- WyldeByrd Art is the handiwork of Lance Lockhart, a Captain with Southwest Airlines and an aviation artist. Not only does he fly the planes, he makes art out of them. Lance is the only airline captain in the United States making art out of decommissioned plane parts. He has developed extensive relationships with aircraft parts specialists and aviation boneyards around the country, often gaining exclusive access to sought after retired aircraft. He then takes them to his Mesa, Arizona, workshop to make beautiful conversation pieces for the home or office.
- Lance has been flying planes for more than 30 years, starting with a Cessna 180 and DHC-2 Beaver as an employee for his family’s aviation business in Northern Ontario, Canada. Now, when he’s not flying the mighty 737 for Southwest Airlines, Lance resides in Mesa, Arizona, with his wife Jamie and sons, Judah Byrd and Lucas Wylde.
