In support for words of sympathy, and in remembering those "who fly West"...
I appreciate "they" let you open, and do not delete, nor lock this one thread.
What is this, whatever A.Net's Rule 15...? Your dad is no longer here.
We are in aviation, a large family, supporting each other through grief, and hard times.
I remember the fly-by when my dad died in the 1970s... Pilot in WW
-2 and Korea...
I also owe my aviation career to him. He spanked my butts often, strict education. That worked.
He would ground me for the week end because I ditched school to go to the airport see planes.
But he made sure that I got my weekly flight training...
Happy contrails - even "flying West..."
