RE: How Much Do You Love Aviation?

Cherish aviation
I love commercial aviation and I spend all my free moments between reading on aviation, collecting memorabilia (mainly postcards and timetables), go to the airport to watch planes, spend time on the internet on aviation related sites.
Wish I could work for the aviation industry.
