CONTRIBUTOR - BOSTON, MA. I am an avid spotter, #Avgeek and overall enthusiast. I hold my private pilot's license for VFR single engine and I can proudly say I have over ten hours in an actual 737 simulator. I am the author of Flightline - an aviation thriller. I currently reside in Boston and travel the world for aviation related opportunities and photography.

We all watched as one of the world’s largest cargo planes touched down, slowed, and turned to taxi.  As it approached us, the size really became apparent.  This is one big airplane. And I was about to have one big AvGeek experience.
