I remember back when I was a young teenager and spent a week with my cousin in Southbend, IN. I would make him take me to the airport on bicycles so i would watch airplanes land and talk off. Back then we were able to go up into the tower and see the radar screens. I've always been an airplane nut. When I was 13 or 14 I flagged down a cessna on floats at the family lake house and the guy took me for a ride for $3. I started flying U-control at 13 and was dazzled by seeing an RC plane for the first time. Then when I turned 16 I was hanging out at the local airport and some guy asked me if I wanted to go for a ride in his small plane.. of course I said yes. When I was 18 I enlisted into the Army and was a Huey mechanic and was able to buy my first RC heli and RC plane, but flying a real plane was always something I wanted to do but could never afford. Two years ago I was deciding between flight lessons and RC helis (again) and chose the helis because it was less expensive (ha!). Something still happens inside when I see a nice plane like the Cirrus. Now I'm 52, with cancer for the second time. I'm going to keep flying those helis until God says come home. Heck, I don't know why I rambled, but see what I mean.. something always happens when I see a plane.
