Richard Dutton


On a bicycle
Lifting up both legs
Through a puddle -- Shukei

Field engineering
Have flying lessons
Cross country solo
California and Arizona
Don’t adjust altimeter
From zero on practice runway
To zero at sea level
Fly at altitude of
Opposing traffic
Jet just misses head on
Dodge big helicopter over
Palm Springs
Pull up sharply to miss
Two Marine fighter jets near base
Wedding postpones final test
Never getting back to joy of piloting

Solo flight close ones
Marriage interrupts training
Still no license
