Some things in life, I just can’t fathom. Flying a jet is one of them. Sometimes I feel so detached from the life of a pilot. A conversation that a good friend had with her husband pretty much summed up the difference in the lives we lead. It went something like this… Husband: “I’m flying out to Ohio today to have lunch with Dad.” Wife: “Oh, that sounds nice, when will you be back then?” Husband: “Probably no later than usually. Should be home around 5 o’clock.” And so leads the life of a pilot. Pilot wives will probably recognize the story behind this picture. A ritual for every last flight. For this pilot it could be THE last flight. Always guided by the needs of the Navy, only a specific career path will lead him back into the air. Another thing I just can’t fathom. Never knowing if you’ll take up your passion again…Always at the mercy of someone else. This pilot and his wife have meant so much to me these past few years…through two deployments and the birth of two babies. I wish them all the best in their new Navy endeavor and hope to see him in the skies again!
