Biography

Short story… I flew jet fighters (USAF) in the 60’s and 70’s. During down periods the pilots would discuss “what would you do?” We would talk about flying situations and how we would react, i.e., ‘You just broke ground and raised the landing gear and you had an engine flameout… what would you do? It got us thinking about bad stuff and what we would do in that situation. So that if it happened we wouldn’t have to think about what to do, we would react to our preplanning.”

  • 1967 4517th Combat Crew Training Squadron, Luke AFB, AZ (F-100)
