One of my most favorite things to do, fly with my father. My dad has been flying for the better part of his life, around 40 years and was a captain of the 747 at America West (now US Air) among many other airplanes. He has flown too many to list and I am sure I only know half of them! He and I try to go fly as much as possible with Jasper here now it’s a little harder to make time, but I try and go at least a few times a month. He is able to show me so many things and since he is so firmiliar with so many planes I have no worries at all flying with him. (unlike flying with some of these young instructors who dont know much.) I am hoping he gets currant in his instruments raiting, (as they have laspt since his retirement from the airlines) and he can be my instructor from here on out and be the one to sign my log book! Having him sign me off his super special to me.
The Focke Wulf one of my favorite airplanes and the Messerschmitt another. I got the opportunity to see these old war birds fly the other day at the Flying Herritage Museum at Paine Field. Something I personally never thought I would get the opportunity to see as these air craft were made and flown way before my generation. I was glad that I got to watch them with my brother David. The one person who can appreciate how special that was to see. German aircraft is some of the best ever made.
my first post…. one of my most favorite things, Volkswagens. I have had my 69 beetle for 13 years and i hope to collect many more eventually. The history behind these cars is one of the reasons I find them to be so neat. My car in particular, came over by ship in 1969 and has only had 3 owners in it’s lifetime. It has been fully restored at one point, 10 years ago, and now since it was a daily driver for years, needs another restoration, just not as intense as the first. The bus at the top is my friend Eric’s bus. He has two and a beetle. The middle two photos are of me and my beetle and the last is mine and my brothers. My father also has one, a 72 that is show quality. It runs in the family. :]
