"I got the bug at about age nine." That's how Ken sums up
the reason for his avid interest in airplanes over his entire life.
"I grew up in Alton, Illinois and spent too many hours with my
nose hanging over the fence." The object of his attention was
Walston Aviation-the biggest Cessna dealer in the world. "Since
St. Louis was right across the river, numerous hours were also spent
watching airliners land at Lambert Field."
