I was 19 years old working in a playground equipment company (summer job between college semesters) when I heard on the radio that Thurman Munson was killed in the summer of 1979.
JFK Jr. and now Yankees pitcher Corey Lidle are more recent examples of the rich and famous having crashed their private "toys".
You really have to respect professional pilots. Flying an airplane is obviously not an easy thing to do.
I for one would never fly with a friend even though he is licensed.
If he didn't go the the Air Force academy and never flew a commercial jet, I ain't a goin'...
Anybody here fly their own plane?
