Garys' passion for aviation was forged as a young boy at Meadows Field in Bakersfield watching the great propeller driven airliners arrive and depart.

The Convairs, Martins & F-27s of United & Pacific Airlines provided an inspiration, and read the aviation books with great intensity, building the models of civilian and military aircraft that were a common sight in San Joaquin Valley skies in the early 1960s. His parents would take him to the Edwards AFB open house where he was treated to the sights & sounds of the military & research aircraft that today, only exist in history books and memories!
