Guess what I did today:Lear Jet Pilot securedownload

Me Lear Jet Cockpit 2 photo

In my best Don Adams (Get Smart) voice:

Would you believe:

I bought a Lear Jet?

Piloted a Lear Jet on a Medevac run from the U.S. to Mexico and back again?

I needed to be medevac’d by Lear Jet?

I Met a friend–who is a Lear Jet pilot for Medevac runs–at the airport on his brief layover?

Of course, its the latter. He asked me if I’d like to inspect the jet, an when I did, he snapped the shots.

With Love,

      Hi, Joanne. As you probably know, I sent the photos as a joke. It doesn’t take much skill or luck to have photos taken on someone else’s plane! ;-D! But it was fun!

    Now I’m jealous… had the opportunity to go through the CEO of Anglo American’s Lear jet… what an experience seeing how the POOR fly….

    • russtowne says:

      LOL! Yeah. This jet had been a corporate exec’s plane before being converted for medevac. My friend pointed out the gold fixtures in the ceiling for the cool air vent and light ports.

  7. Any sentence that contains “Lear jet” is exciting, Russ! πŸ˜‰ looks like a fun day…

    How fun!! And you look quite comfortable at the controls..

    • russtowne says:

      Thank you, Mimi. I actually noticed that in the photos too. I expected to look like I do when I ride a horse (it’s not a pretty sight) but was pleasantly surprised that it felt good, and seemed natural even in the photo.
