I have also had a lifelong fascination for flying. Unfortunately, after having a stroke in 1992, I could no longer pass a physical. I have had a lot of fun with a flight simulator, though. I have a lot of videos I made with it on www.photobucket.com/slrman. Look for the album called "Flight Simulator Videos" As for sailing, I have worked deliveries of sailboats all over the world. I also owned a sailing school in Panama City, Florida as well as one in Phoenix. AZ. I often took people to San Diego to teach sailing there in larger boats, too.
