    Lust Fulfilled

    Having spent over 50 years and more than 30,000 hours flying, and only a few months left in my career, I lost all control of my rational self and bought the watch I never thought I would own! Having a small piece of the original Wright Flyer was an opportunity that comes by once in a lifetime! So my friends At ED Marshall had a magnificent example of the stainless model in black that is now on my wrist! I have lived and breathed aviation virtually my whole life and to be able to own this small piece of cloth in this marvelous watch is still hard for me to comprehend! So here she is my own little piece of history that was the birth of aviation, the Wright Flyer! Cheers Jim.

    To me Jim, that makes perfect sense. Once flying is in the blood, you can't shake it!
    Enjoy the watch, and do post more pictures when you get a chance - it's a lovely timepiece, and one we don't see enough of around here!

    Blue skies and tailwinds, Jim.

    Jim.

    I don't think I will offend anyone here by saying that there is no one more suited nor more deserving to have the Wright Flyer on this Forum.

    You are an inspiration to us all and it is great to feel that we all, in a small way, know you.

    Enjoy the Wright Flyer, and the next few months until your retirement. Then the fun begins!!
