Disneyland 2008 and New Years 2009

We flew to Disneyland for New Years it was really fun and great to get there in 3 hours in stead of 7. I need to build hour anyway. Here a few pics from the trip.

Check out Jessica's pick headset she got from me for Christmas. 
I think this was my favorite ride.
Hmmm... Churros

Pulling the sword from the stone I almost got it.

Eating at the Blue Bayou the one of the Pirate's ride. It's really good but I wouldn't take any kids there.

We were the there New Years eve it was crazy too.
We stayed for this great fireworks show that was going to happen but a thick fog rolled in and all you could see is the sky light up and hear them go off. video

Inside the new Nemo ride.


Looks like fun. I am jealous. By the way, I am thinking it took longer than 3 hours to get there, maybe 3 hours actual in the air time?? May 2009 be a great year for you!

I love the pictures. Jessica the pink headset is very cute:) It looks like you had lots of fun. I especially like that sweatshirt and I'm surprised you couldn't get the sword out of the stone.

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.
