A wee bit of bragging today. Yesterday I ferried a plane for a friend, and my ride home was provided by Colonel Robert Roetcisoender USAF (Ret.) in his personal Cessna Cardinal.

Col. Bob, as we know him, was on the first active crew of the SR-71. Also a long time pilot examiner, he awarded my private, instrument, and commercial certificates. I have a great admiration for him.
