"I never had a chance, a choice. I was born to love planes." - TheLeabres

20 years before God put my soul on Earth, my Dad was a teenager in the Philippines watching the sky filled with Japanese Zeros dogfighting against American fighters. He got hooked on the fascination with flying machines. Ever since I can remember, Dad sought out the TV documentaries and books on WWII planes. Growing up, I shared his interest in watching all the TV shows that had anything to do with WWII planes. I saved pennies and built all the plastic models. I tied them on strings and hung them from the ceiling wishing and dreaming they could fly. (Flash forward to now) Some dreams can come true!
