NOTE: Soon the University of Wyoming (my home state) will takeover this website. Everything will be just as it is now (with the exception of a few last minute additions/subtractions) and available for public access. However, I will no longer be able to make any changes. It will all be as-in in perpetuity!

It is my hope that many will want to access the sight to read/use the stories. Perhaps view the many photos in the gallery on the Aircraft Sales page.

I would like to say a sincere “Thank YOU” for taking the time to checkin to my website. I hope it has brought enjoyment to you.

There is no set order to my stories. As I add a story I make no attempt to put one ahead of another with one exception. My current BLOG – The Latest and Greatest… I will try to keep at the top for updating and ease of finding it.

My old pal, Mike Daciek has some of his GREAT stories next then my AIRCRAFT FOR SALE section followed by more than eighty stories and videos. Please note: My stories are GUARANTEED to thwart insomnia!

There are a few stories I’ve added that were written by other individuals. The Felix Smith story was written by Sam Roberts. Authors Jay Price and Peggy Lim wrote about Jim Rhyne. Intrepid former USAF fighter pilot, LTC Ron Green has some of his included herein.

Some of you have asked me for recommendations about setting up a website and other technical things I have no clue about. However, I’m very adept at contacting Bob Diercksmeier <>. Bob is amazing and can point you where you need to go!

Comments both favorable and critical are welcome! Thank you for checkin’ in. N’joy and STAY SAFE!
