I'm a cast bullet shooter and aircraft lover also. As a Sheriff Sgt. I ran the aviation unit and was the company pilot for eight years of my career. I also have owned three different airplanes with partners. My total flying time is over 2100 hours.
My wife and I used to go to Tucson, AZ for 4 months each winter to get out of the cold weather here in Michigan. Every year I visited the Pima Air Museum in Tucson. They have one that is definitely a must see if you are in the area. I especially liked looking over the Russion Migs that they have on display. The air museum is just south of the Davis Monthan AFB Bone yard where all the old surplus aircraft are stored if we ever need to put them back in service again. That's really something to see too.,
The first helicopter I flew was a TH 55 ( Hughes 300) that I purchased through a program where government entities could buy them. This one came from the boneyard and became a police helicopter.
Never jumped out of an aircraft as I always believed that jumping out of a perfectly good running aircraft was not for me..
