AirLeg 26

“To sober you up a bit, let me give you some pioneer pilot life span information:

1. Lieutenant Max Immelmann - 26 years old

2. Sir John Alcock - 27 years old

3. Amelia Earhart - 38 years old

4. Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge - 26 years old

5. Lincoln Beachey - 28 years old

Anyway, sacrifices were made and the richness of aviation pioneer history certainly gives you an appreciation for the joys and abilities we have in this day and age of our times. Don't stop now! There are four other ways to get to this place in scenario number 11 Besides, there's a lot more I have said that will tickle your innards and give you a merry heart!”

Line up for straight in runway 25 HAWTHORNE airport, and happy landings.
