||Past U.S. Advanced Team Member, 1997 and 1999.
I began my career in 1954 as a U.S. Air Force engine mechanic. By 1957,
I had my pilot wings and Second Lieutenant's commission, and then spent
28 years in the military. I spent 6 years as a member of USAF's elite "Air
Commando" group, graduated from the USAF (Top Gun) Fighter Weapons School
and flew all models of the F-4 during 3 combat tours in Southeast Aisa.
I live with my wife Gracie on a small grass airstrip, Aresti Aerodrome,
near Forth Worth, TX.
