My first flight was in AF ROTC at Florida State in a C-45. We flew from Dale Mabry Field in Tallahassee to Panama City, about 75 miles, where we turned around and came back to Tallahassee. Our pilots were AF ROTC Instructors at FSU and let each of us (6 in all) sit in the copilot's seat. It was a real thrill! Later I was to spend most of my flying time in C-124s. Nice web site, I enjoyed it. Keep up the good work!
