Start of the summer

Jessica had the last day of school today and now we had the whole summer to go or just the 2 months that it is. The camping trip is now canceled because well from what I hear there is going to be a 3 or 4 in. of snow on the ground so well it doesn't sound like fun camping. so the back up plan is to go see Indiana Jones and go out to eat it should be good I'm really excited well. 

So in my life things are going well i went on my first flight cross county trip it was really fun. I had plans to fly up to Prescott then over to Payson and eat lunch there. But when i woke up that morning and looked at the weather it was too windy in Prescott so I had to make a change in plans but i had to fly at a airport that was above 4000 ft. so the only one that was close and had good weather was Willcox. We didn't stay in that whole long then we went up to Safford. The flight felt like my first flight all over again. there was so much going on inside the plane it was crazy. A lot of new things to learn. It was so much fun though at the end of the flight I almost forgot that I was doing this all for school and not just for fun. It was great!

I also over the week bought a MacBook. I've eyed the one Jessica had that the school gave her and really fell in love with everything, so i went and got one of my own here is a pic it taking a pic of it self.

Shad's Flight to Catalina Island the Airport in the Sky

My last flight in 2015 was a perfect April day with light winds, clear skies and temperatures in the mid 70s F. The crew was myself, my son Shadrach, and two buddies from the Navy; Tony and Bill. We were flying to Catalina Island KAVX (aka The Airport in the Sky). The day was so clear we took off from just outside San Diego KSEE and once we got over the ocean we could see the island right away. We flew in to airport and took a shuttle down to the main town, Avalon, and walked around for a bit before heading home.

This was one of my most memorable flights not because of the close friends I was with, the perfect day, or the bucket list location. But because it was my son's last flight with me before he pass away in May 2015 at the age of 5. He loved to go flying with Dad and I loved taking him up. He died of cancer that he had been fighting for the previous two years. That April we knew he wasn't going to make it. We had known since about November of 2014 but we were just living…

FIFI the only Flying B-29

My youngest brother and I in November of 2010 got to go see the only flying B-29 when it came to the valley for a few days it was very neat. There was also a B-25 and B-17 there. We got to go inside of all of them and took lots of pictures. Below are some and on a link to even more.

MH-60R Seahawk

The next part of our training we were tested on was the implantation of the MH-60R Seahawk . Up to this point we had simulated controlling the capabilities of a SH-60B which has been the work horse of the Navy since the 80's.The new "Romeo" has all the latest and greatest equipment and the tactics are slightly different. Passed the test. Just a few weeks until graduation.
