Over the years, I have accumulated some baggage along the way, which includes various and diverse memories. I thought it was time to put a few of those memories into story form and document them for those who might be interested. Part of my motivation comes from my flight instructor and retired engineer, Andy Sobiech, who passed away several months ago. His wife, Maggie, told us about a request that she had made of Andy a few years prior, which was to put some of his memories on paper, which he did. His journal looked to be several pages thick. I would welcome a chance to read it.

Note: There are several technical terms in the stories; hover the mouse cursor over the highlighted ones to view a definition.

The following two windows describe some of what I have been up to for the last several years.

Thank you for your interest - Ron Fenwick
