Aviation Career

It all started here... Fun times... low and slow. Doing it on water... My first landing on water.
I'm the one with the baby face. Dials and gauges... brain overload. The white rocket... high and fast. 1st trip... I'm hooked.
That's me... legs swinging... Holding on for impact with earth. Not so sure about this thing... What happened to the wings?
Bigger is better? Got my wings back... ahhhh... He's happy again... Left seat... Now he's very happy.
B-727 F-100 MD-11 B-737
Study, study, study... 21 years. Finally... Left seat--B757/767 From my office... headed to Hawaii Over the Pacific... to the Islands.
 
Touchdown... time for a layover... My favorite layover... Kauai All-nighter back to LAX... Contrails to a new life... what a ride.
