This is what my Son was flying before he got sick. C 17 globemaster. Well he was second seat, but not bad for a 26 year old.
Fishing and skiing keeps me a little sane.

He has glioblastoma. A killer brain tumor. He has had his head cut on so much it is like one big metal plate. It was gone for awhile, but yesterday we found out that it came back.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Seems ouchy. He is brave and tough to have his head cut on like that. Toughness has carried me through a lot and allowed me to survive. I will say a prayer for him. Push him to fight hard and never give up. Like in survival training they put him through. I will say a prayer for him.

Sadly he has fought this like a ground pounding marine. But he is losing the use of his left arm, and his sight is getting bad. Oh yeah, he fights like a trooper. My dad is my hero, but my son may replace him.

Thanks for the good words. Damn he loved flying. It was what he was all about.

OP: Yup! His favorite coffee cup has a picture of a plane and clouds. If it ever breaks he will probably never drink coffee again. I think if he could sleep with it he would.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 664301

Yep those things can land almost anywhere with a hasty air field provided. You ought to see one take off under full power. Hell most cessna 172's can't take of that short. Then once in the air they start cranking them like they are freaking fighters. But one needs to cover their ears. LOLZ

Yep I flew a bit when I was young. I dreamed of getting my commercial certs. But I never did. Twice a year with a buddy of mine we rent a Cessna 172, and putt around for an hour, and then take it back. Gees av gas is outrageous. Hell the rent time is cheap. The gas is what kills ya.

I fly RC models. I know that is a big step down, but he would be suprised at the ammount of guys just like him there. Loads of fun.

 Quoting: SilverPatriot



Yeah, look I couldn't care about planes when I read about your son...My oldest will be 18 soon...

However, if I were in your shoes, I'd enjoy together the thing you two care about the most: Each other and flying/planes...go to every museum, air show, oh small airports are a lot of fun too...go do it all! Travel out of town to see them...take the time to do it. There is something special about one on one time with your kids, out of town, going to see or do something special that makes it magical...
