“A profoundly emotional experience that truly connects you with history”

Skip, an entrepreneur with a love of warbirds and museums, is seen here at Pearl Harbor with WWII top ace Col. Bud Anderson.  Skip and Bud are both good friends of ours and each are inspirations in their own ways.

I am an avid fan of World War II military aviation, I consider myself blessed to have accumulated over a thousand hours flying  World War II aircraft including the B-17, B-24, B-25, PBY, C-47, P-51, and T-6. I even met my wife while flying The Memphis Belle!

As much as I enjoy the National Air and Space Museum, The Museum of Naval Aviation, and others,  nothing is as impactful for me than The Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor. Standing on the spot where the first bomb on December 7th was dropped, and viewing the exhibits and aircraft in the original hangar that is still bullet riddled from the December 7th, 1941 attack, is a profoundly emotional experience that truly connects you with  history.
