Passion!  This website is devoted to passion!

I'm a firm believer in it - whether it be music, cooking, painting, history - all of which I love - or airplanes, trains, boats and other things, which I also love. When you're on the green side of the grass - you ought to live and love life with gusto.

You are entering a very popular, albeit,  very esoteric website.  It  is devoted to some of the things I find interesting. Nothing more, and nothing less.  Other folks must enjoy some of the same things too, as this website has received  many millions of visits in the past few years - including one especially notable day (Sept. 28, 2010), when 1,508,235 hits were recorded in a single day!  In September 2010, I had over 6 million  hits with half a million visitors.   All, without a shred of advertising or promotion.  Not bad, not too bad at all.

Although the subject matter is pretty narrowly focused, I try to cover it comprehensively and in detail, mostly based upon my own personal experiences.  I'm retired after working for Boeing for over 30 years, and have loved airplanes for more than 50.  I also like trains and boats, and, well, ....a whole lot of other stuff.

I am a very active volunteer at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, and have managed a series of major projects for them, including the 727 / 737 / 747 Prototypes, Concorde and Super Constellation.  So, a lot of this material covers these and other projects.   But, it is not the Museum's website!  Not everyone can come to Seattle or see these airplanes in person - so this will allow you a virtual tour.  Actually, some of these tours are much better than the ones you could get if you did visit in person.

I have enormous data, personal experience, and photographic resources and only hope I can find the time to process and create pages that will share some of these subjects, in depth,  with like-minded people throughout the world.  What's on these pages now is only 1% of what I have squirreled away!

So, forgive me if some of it could be better, fancier, or more up-to-date.  Someday.......

Enjoy!

This website is best viewed using a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels !  Not meant to be viewed on your I-Phone.  Bigger really is better!

There are a lot of pictures.  They've been brutally compressed, but  a high-speed, broadband connection will save a lot of waiting and aggravation.
