It Came, It finally came!

Yes it came! you are asking your self what and then sneaking a peek at the pictures below. I got a new license plate. For some time I've been obsessed for some reason with license plates. I've even had to change my mother-in-law's plate. It all started with Jessica's car and the dealership license plates cover that was around it. I wanted to take it off but she wouldn't let. She said it looked funny with out a cover. So I was out to find a new cover that fit just right. She loves frogs and was looking to something that was frog that didn't say "I'm a tree huger" and I couldn't ever find one so I went for the next best thing. School. I found the NAU bookstore , Jessica's alma mater, online and she found one she liked. and here it is I think. I fit her car quite well.

In the mean time I was thinking about my own car and I been feeling that I need to jazz it up a bit. I bought a sparky sticker for the window but that just wasn't enough then I felt inspired this one of my favorite web sites.

I thought it was cool so I thought I get a flight oriented custom ASU plate the next time my registration came around. Then Jessica said why don't you just do it now. I didn't even think you could but she was right. We spent some time trying to figure out what to put on it. I knew I wanted something to do about flying and on the ASU plates you can only have 5 letters. We tried lot of different things: FLY, FLGHT, IFLY, PILOT, etc. Which were all taken. Then found WEFLY, and FLYBY that were available we like that the 2nd. I put in the order and 14-20 business days later it's all on my car. I think I looks great.

For a while I had noticed that there were holes to mount a plate on the front of my car. I settled on a scuba flag (red with a white strip) and there is a shark to make it look cool.

I like how you took the pictures of our cars in such a way as to make your car's butt look smaller than my car's butt. That wasn't very nice. Just remember that when I have the camera someday...

Ha. funny times. I like how you have one license plate that talks about the air and another that talks about the water.

People who don't know better will think that you just hate keeping your feet on the ground.

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.
