“The F-100 was my first fighter out of pilot training and I flew my last flight in AF in September 1989 in an F-100. How’s that for career progression.
Went to work for Northwest where I flew for 20 more years. Retired from Northwest Airlines/Delta Airlines in October of 2009 as a Captain on the A320 Airbus.
Since that time I’ve resided in Greeley and Kersey CO and fly my RV-8 Experimental as a member of the Rocky Mountain Renegades formation airshow team.”
