Special Events

From time to time I have worked for or with well known people. These occasions are always full of surprises and are always really fun. More pictures will be added as I have time to scan other events.

The pictures on this page are cropped from a full size picture which gives a better perspective to what is being shown. To see a picture full size, simply click on the picture and it will appear full size in a new browser.

You remember Jessica. She played Daisy Duke on the remake of the Dukes of Hazard. She will always be remembered for her comments about Chicken of the Sea being chicken not tuna.

Click on the photo on the left to see him climbing down the boarding ropes to experience firsthand what if felt like. Very impressive!

The picture on the right is one of my favorites. It reminds me of the many scenes in his movies where he scratches his head. He's not acting; he likes to scratch his head.

I flew the Dallas Cowboys to many charity basketball games all over Texas. I'm 6' 4". The fellow to my left is Too Tall Jones. He is big!! It was a tight squeeze but we got him into the Learjet I managed and was captain for a year, N437AC.

The night I passed my FAA check ride for my Boeing 737 Captain rating was one of the happiest in my life. I flew N82SW for over an hour doing a variety of one engine landings and other emergency operations for the FAA inspector observing me.

In September of 1985 I flew my Grob 103 two place glider from Taos, New Mexico to Salida, Colorado and back in 5 hours, 31 minutes and 9 seconds, setting a US National record for speed on an out and return course of 300 km. The total straight line distance was 467.8 km (32.2 km short of the 500 km mark). The actual distance flown was significantly more than 500 km.

The certificate is on the left and the cover sheet of a book of documentation for the flight is on the right. We had a barograph onboard recording that we never landed during the 467 km flight. We used continuous roll film photographs to document the takeoff, turn in Salida, Kansas and return landing in Taos, New Mexico.

The session is attended by 5,000 engineers and economists interested in the future of oil pricing and production costs. I was the overall Symposium Chairman in my last year. It was quite an honor.
