It is a pleasure to see this article on the website. A few days before AirVenture 2001, I received my copy of Flying Magazine that contained this article. As I read the article, I felt that Lane's words perfectly summed up the way I feel about our history, and our veterans. Her words were clearly from the heart of someone who has a true appreciation of our aviation heritage, and more importantly, the people involved. The longer I read, the more it hit home, for my father is of the generation Lane speaks of. I finished the article, put down the magazine and cleared a lump from my throat. I said, "I've got to meet this person." Little did I know that I would. At AirVenture a friend and I almost literally walked into Lane at the EAA Wearhouse. I had the pleasure of talking with Lane for a while, and I can honestly say that this chance meeting was one of the major highlights of the convention for me. As long as Lane writes for Flying, I'll continue subscribing.
