David is a longtime aficionado of aviation and its history ever
since, as a 5 year old, he'd wave to the pilot of a Piper Cub
circling low over his neighbor's house on Long Island, New York, USA.
At the age of nine, his family moved to a small farm in Ohio where
his father took a job as an avionics technician at Wright-Patterson
AFB in Dayton, Ohio. Frequent visits to the Air Force Museum, every
Armed Forces Day, open house and airshow cinched it up... he was
hooked on aviation. He joined the Civil Air Patrol and was a Junior
Air Force ROTC Cadet.
