Comments

Home Town: Born in Annapolis, MD. Now, Star Harbor, TX (about 60 miles SE of Dallas)
One of the few who managed to escape the Airlift community and stay in fighters the rest of my career. But, if you had to fly transports for a while, the Herc was at least tactical.
For sure, I never flew a fighter I didn’t like, but the 3 single seat ones were the most fun.
