Biography

I was born 30th of July 1955 and grew up on a typical Danish farm. My UPT class is 79-08 at Vance AFB, Oklahoma and I also participated in the fighter-lead-in course at Holloman AFB, New Mexico, late 1979.

I was lucky to be assigned to 730 Squadron at Skrydstrup Airbase, the unit flew the F-10, andd I was flying there for two years until 1982 when the F-100 was replaced by F16. Many of the F100’s were delivered to the Turkish Air Force, where they flew for several years.

After serving in the airforce, I joined SAS, as did many of my colleagues. I am now retired.

My wife and I have been together for many years, and we will have been married for exactly 35 years on the day, I am scheduled for flight with Dean (23rd of June). We have three children and six grandchildren.
