EDUCATION University of South Alabama (BA)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I flew myself and my wife around the world in our plane as the pilot in command and set three world speed records. I graduated second from the bottom of my high school class. I spent three years volunteering in Israel. I got my helicopter license when I was 70. I flew a 75-year-old flying boat across the Atlantic Ocean. I had a flying accident when I was flying solo at 16. I skied barefooted at 70.
