    Sounds similar to One Six Right, which I loved. Please showcase the magic carpet qualities of flying. I just flew from VA to TX and back VFR in an antique Skyhawk, and saw a lot of places that few others get to see. It is also so much fun to be in the air on a wonderful day!

  7. Can't wait to see your final production, and know that bringing your information to our next generation to spark interest in aviation will keep the dream alive.

    My father was a private pilot in the 1940 era and was so busy with business that he had no time for teaching any of his eight children his passion of flying. He used the aircraft for business mostly but loved to be in the air . He was an aviation machinist in the late 1920's with the US Navy in Panama, with one of his commanding officers they used surplus Jenny Parts to build a plane which was used to fly to baseball games along the canal .

    His interest in aviation prompted me to take lessons at the Vermont flying Service in exchange for cleaning hangars and gassing up during the post war boom in Aviation in 1947.

    I could spend another hour chatting but this email is about my Dad and I have lots' of photo's of his flying days in the Navy that someday will share .
