A Thrill to Own 1957 H35 N64JW (D-5014)

Joe Weaver, Flower Mound, Texas

One of my earliest memories is a Saturday morning sitting in front of the TV to watch reruns of Sky King. I grew up watching planes fly overhead and would dream about owning one someday. When my dad returned from business trips we went as a family to pick him up at the airport. I sat at the window mesmerized by what the pilots were doing in the cockpit. I knew then that being an airline pilot was what I wanted to do when I grew up.
