Tom's Flight Dreams
I've topped the winds-swept heights where never Lark or even Eagle flew...
One of the best aspects of flying is the great and diverse people I have had the privilege of meeting and in many cases now counting them as my friend.
I have been to Moscow and met a gentleman who was a fighter pilot in the Soviet defense forces at the same time I flew for the Navy, but today, he’s just a fellow pilot.
I’ve met numerous record holders, celebrities, and statesmen through aviation, but the thing that connects us is our love of the sky.
“Flyers have a sense of adventures yet to come, instead of dimly recalling adventures of long ago as the only moments in which they truly lived”.
