The Best Feel Good Aviation Story I’ve Ever Told! Flying with one of the World’s Oldest Active Pilots and Flight Instructors!
After arriving in Canada with Martin and Micke, ending our Atlantic Crossing Ferry Flight (episodes here: https://youtu.be/ctgzb2SDq4Y), I help facilitate getting them an experience of a lifetime #flying a Stearman #warbird trainer. We met up my friend and mentor, and one of the most qualified pilots I know, Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Ron Holden, at the Canadian Aviation Museum in Windsor, Ontario. You might recognize Ron from some of the warbird videos and others we’ve shot at the hangar in Windsor. Ron is a 90 year old retired RCAF pilot AND STILL certified as a flight Instructor for both #generalaviation and Aerobatics!
