I am not a pilot nor will I ever be one. My skill sets lie with a video camera and editing software, simply put, I am a storyteller. Flying with Dr. Ken Wagner "WAGS" in his P-51 Mustang, Lady Alice, was one of those "Living the Dream" moments in my life. I had the honor to fly a second time with Ken and this video was from that flight.

Live The Dream!
