for my brother
I have rarely flown on an airplane.
But my brother was a loadmaster on a C-5A,
one of the largest airplanes in the world.
He never did make it to becoming a pilot.
But he always loved airplanes, flying on
the traffic helicopters, taking lessons,
any time he had the chance. Civil Air Patrol.
Going to the airport. I think he half drove
me crazy. I just stayed on the
ground and wrote about birds.
