I never landed a plane. I wouldn't be here had I tried, and neither would the pilot. Seeing as I never asked for take-off or landing training, I hope you won't think I was a 9/11 hijacker trainee.<quoted text>
Did he let you try and land? Landing is the hardest part of flying. The ride is not over until you are on the ground, wheel side down.
Oh, I flew Sebastian Cabot (Mr. French) in Vietnam from Saigon to My Tho and he was upset with me. He had requested an OH-58 Kiowa as he wanted some stick time but no one told me and I had removed the flight controls from the left seat as per unit SOP.
He said he had a private pilots licence and owned a C-182 Skylane and had already flown a Huey.
Cabot the actor? I liked him. British. Didn't he die fairly young?
