Did it today! After 12 years of watching the sky and dreaming, I finally

had
my first fly since buying the farm. (Wonder if anyone can guess why I
stopped flying?)


FYI: According to various sources, in the early days of military aviation
when a pilot augered the government sent his family a benefit check.
Because of this, pilots referred to crashing as "buying the farm."

By the way, congratulations! :
