Ace of the base…

If they ever make a movie out of my life. I want Snoopy playing the lead. photo from yahoo.


Hey Y’all,


My motivation to become a pilot was all based on that stupid “Top Gun” movie. It was pretty simple, Tom Cruise got to fly fast, break the rules, pick up hot chicks and use his considerable movie skills to shoot down enemy airplanes.

Less Maverick and more Big Mac. He should have gone with the baggy look with the tent sized  flight suit. Worked for me. photo from yahoo


Amazingly enough, my life has mirrored the Top Gun movie. Yes, I got to fly fast and low. Well, fast for a huge, lumbering, four bladed propeller driven airplane. Yes, I picked up a hot chick in a bar (my wife before she became my wife).

And yes I broke some rules which led directly to my first and only credited “KILL!”


In my widest dreams, I never would have dared to dream reality.
