A retired aviation attorney with 40 years of experience creating computer flight simulations in my spare time. A commercial instrument-rated pilot with many hours spent flying across the country and a few hours spent flying an combat air simulation in a Marchetti. Survived one year of engineering at Tulane before deciding to become an English teacher. Tax manager at Cessna for 13 years followed by 20 years in private practice. Author and lecturer on aviation matters.
Avid reader and collector of aviation stories and creator of websites honoring our WWII aviation veterans, including: The 6th Bomb Group which flew B-29 missions in the Pacific during the final year of the war; and VC-27 "The Saints", assigned to light carrier "Savo Island" which participated in many major engagements, including the Battle Off Samar.
I am here to learn, but also hoping that I also have something useful to share.
