The Wings Over Natchitoches logo was inspired by the U.S. Air Force wings of Curtis Guillet, the father of Barry Guillet. Curtis was a certificated pilot at the time of entering his military service, as a result, he flew 'and instructed' in the P-51 Mustang while serving his country. After his military service, Curtis was a significant part of the aviation community in Natchitoches until his passing. Today, Curtis' wings hang in Barry's office and were adapted to use as the Wings Over Natchitoches logo with the shield being changed to reflect the 1714 founding of Natchitoches by the French.
