Started crewing the F-16 in 2004 in the Indiana Air National Guard. Been with the Blacksnakes now ever since then. Awesome aircraft and enjoy it thoroughly. Also have A&P licsence to work on aircraft and put it to use in April 2007 working at Pinnacle Airlines (Northwest Airlink) doing maintenance on Canadair Regional Jets. Love working and maintaining aircraft.

I am a friend and family person, so it was hard to abandon everyone. So I opted to stay around and join the Air National Guard that way I could still work on the Falcon, even though it is not going to be around much longer. I love the F-16 a lot, and hate to see it go, though we all know an aircraft always gets old and retirement is inevitable. Glad I was able to work on it while I have the opportunity.
