Airline Features

Love planes, airships and flying things? Me, too.

Airline Features
The handsome guy in the photograph is my husband James with his first plane, soon after earning his pilot's license. While I know how to strap myself into a plane, he actually knows how to fly one. And while the details of take-off and landing still seem mostly like magic to me, I love to write about my above-the-cloud adventures. My coverage of airlines, planes and flight — past and present — has garnered numerous accolades.
