Did you see the recent NYC to South Africa glitch fare I posted on my Facebook page? If not, it was one of the many flight deals I have posted.

Want to know the coolest thing in the world? Watching your favorite person kick ass achieving a major goal.

A week wandering aviation Disneyland

Trying to describe EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh to pilots who have never been is hard enough, but whenever I talk about it to non-pilots, the reference to Oshkosh usually conjurs up overalls.How can I describe the miles of airplanes of every imaginable type, as far as the eye can see? How do I properly convey the thrill of warbirds overhead all day long? How do I get people to understand the magnitude of Mr. T getting to fly in the AIRSHOW at Oshkosh?...more

No Souvenirs from Vacation for Me

There is nothing tackier than touristy t-shirts with locale names, glittery plastic key chains too big for use, and mini license plates, with typical names only, usually made in some less desirable third world destination. Yet, as travelers, somewhere in history, a seed was planted that we must bring a souvenir of where we visited, no matter how brief, as a memory. ...more
