Mom the Pilot

How many children can say both of their parents were pilots? For my siblings and me, we all can! Both my Mom and Dad were skilled aviators. Here are some photos of them together, around their plane, and flying; all stunning images taken from my Father's old Nikon camera.

 Marilyn Meinhard and Joseph Meinhard early 1950s.

Our Mom is currently finishing up a book on her flying experience, I cannot wait for it to get done. I hope to use some of these photos in it and several others that my Dad took over the years. I sure am proud to have a Mom that was a pilot!
