Since 87, I think, I got hooked on aviation because once my grandparents made a trip to Europe and my mom took me to the airport to see the aircrafts. The minute I stepped into the observation deck, those big aircrafts became and obsession to me... and I was just 6 years old!( I´ve been in an aircraft before, but I was like 9 months old). One funny thing happened when my grandparents arrived, I was at the deck and I put my head between 2 parallel bars to see the airplanes better... I got stucked in them and a pilot helped me to take off my head...
After a while, all that passion increased by the constant biz trips of my dad in 1995. First to NYC. Then it was my turn to travel: I went to Buenos Aires on a 737-300. I can´t describe what I felt the second the airplane took off but it was really good. Since then, I collect stuffs from my dad´s trips like boarding tickets, timetables, luggage tags even pillows (I have 8)
On Jan 30th, day I came back from Sao Paulo, aviation was my #1 obsession, much more than a few years ago. Now I can identify almost all Boeing aircrafts with less than 10% of errors)
I have tons of pics on my computer also
But I will not take the pilot career... I will follow advertising and webdesign
too much for today, my english is not that good to keep writing..
- ta-ta for now..
