Mr. Jetplane coming at ya...

Picture of Mr. Jetplane and my Maid of Honor Dr. W (yes she's really a Dr.)

Well hell has most definitely froze over, Mr. Jetplane has entered into the blogging world. You have asked, and I have talked him into answering. I sent him the questions via email, and I was on the phone when he opened the email.

He was like "What are these questions? Why do people want to know about me?" Well he's answered them, in his own unique, sarcastic way. And they are as follows...

What went through Mr. Jetplane's mind when he first saw you on your wedding day? Wow, this is actually happening and she looked beautiful.

What did he want to be when he grew up when he was 8 years old?

Probably ruler of the free world, I don’t ever remember wanting to be one thing, always wanted to never limit my options.

Where does he see the 2 of you in 10 years?
Probably be in either DC or in a fighter squadron finishing up my second ops tour.

I'd love to more about Mr. Jetplane's whole pilot thing- is he in UPT right now? What kind of planes does he want to fly?
I am not in UPT, I finished my navigation training, IFF, and am now working on my CSO upgrade (Electronic warfare officer). We will be moving this summer Goldsboro NC to start my training on the F15E.

How long has he wanted to be a pilot?
Honestly I really never had the bug, I was just bored w/managing banks and wanted to do something else. I got accepted to the AF, then was able to be accepted to track fighters/bombers, and finished by being lucky enough to go the Strike Eagle.

What's his favorite plane?
A little experimental jobber that Mrs. Jetplane’s parents friend (mike) built. I was amazed that he build the whole thing himself in his basement. It was just fun flying it, no stress.

Does he have any career goals both near and distant?
To finally finish the RTU and get mission qualified. In the future we will have to see if I get bored again and where that will take me.

FYI - Mr. Jetplane entertains the idea of running for political office, which is interesting since we don't share a lot of the same political views.

What's his favorite memory of you?
Sitting at Applebee’s w/ a busted lip, and cracking jokes
(This is a somewhat of a long story that I'll have to tell another time. But we were on vacay at my parents' condo in Ft. Myers. 1st day of a week long vacay and his actions and my drunk ass contributed to me having a busted lip. And right after he's like, you're fine let's go to Applebee's.)
In his opinion, what's the weirdest thing the Mrs. does?
Her OCD about making sure she shut the garage door and making sure she unplugged her stuff. (I will turn around in our subdivision to make sure I close the garage door. I can't handle it if I don't know the door is down.)

What is your most embarrassing moment?
I'm not easily embarrassed I usually find it hilarious, but probably when I went for a sleep walk in a hotel in Pittsburgh, without my key and clothes.

(This story is hilarious, and I have to tell it at a later time. It still makes me laugh so hard I cry. He used to be in Pittsburgh 1 week out of the month when he was managing banks. Side note - Mr. prefers to sleep in the buff, which makes the story even funnier. Oh and the story includes him having to take a ride on a elevator to the front desk to get a room key.)

What do you that most gets on the Mrs. nerves?
I pick on her from time to time.

What does she do?
Her tendency to leave things where she takes them off and not pick them up again (ie Shoes, socks, purses, and ear rings)

What is your favorite color? Blue

When would you like to welcome a Baby Jet Plane to the world?
Whenever the Mrs. can handle it, but probably in a year or two!

What is his favorite place to visit?
Home, I know it’s a crappy answer, but when your gone as much as I am it’s nice to come home and see parents, friends, nephews, grandparents, cousins, and siblings. (not particularly in that order) Luckily for me they all live in my hometown.

This picture is on our honeymoon. We went snorkeling and spent a day on a small island.

This pic is from Destin. We met up with my friend Lou who got engaged the night before. We ate a fabulous dinner with them that lasted for a couple of hours, and had a great time. She's going to be getting married in ATL end of March.
