Loves airplanes and a girl. That's me!
I have had a love affair with aviation since the first time I looked up into the sky. Mom swears "apwane" (airplane) was one of first words. I almost got named Delta, Valkyrie or Cessna. Yes folks, I said Cessna.
As a child I first used an old hand held telescope to airplane watch from my side walk. Try watching planes thru a telescope, a small one, some day. Trust me, it aint easy folks!
Later I got my first pair of binoculars and that made things a lot easier on me. I soon began recording movements. Sun up to sun down there was kid sitting on the side walk with her binoculars writing things down. Piedmont 727 at 8:23am. Eastern 757 12:13pm. Pan-Am L-1011 7:28pm.
Wardair Canada 747 7:43pm. Yup, that was me.
They made fun of me in school too. Airplane geek extraordinare!
I always knew I would end up working in aviation. My dream was to be a Piedmont flight attendant. Then US Airways spoiled that dream one tragic day
(I still hold that grudge against them)
I ended up at Southwest Airlines. Probably one of the smartest moves I ever made.
So, here I am, 31 years old and a female STILL in love with aviation!!!
I believe I can fly.....
