Yep. Oil trust fund baby. I'd really consider giving up one of my nuts to do what he does. No bullshit.

Hey, at least he has the sense to spend it well. The guy has all but single-handedly preserved dozens of priceless and last-of-their-kind flying artifacts.

POF isn't open to the public. He keeps teasing us that he has big plans for a new venture, but the museum closed a few years ago. He still runs Sun N Fun every year, though.

Why was he pointing at various instruments and giving the thumbs up?

Is this a filmed test flight for a customer?

Yeah, I think if I had hit one of those MEGA lotteries, I'd definitely go learn how to fly. I'd probably start with sailplanes, as my father who was a USAF pilot and learned at the USAF Academy advises, it's the best way to learn how to FLY.

Only if I think I had enough experience and could handle it, would I want to buy a classic plane and actually fly it.
