Old Bold Pilotsl

Posted by Ward Fredericks on March 20, 2004

The thread below which referred to spinning out of control reminded me of a phrase about pilots. "It is said that there are old pilots and bold pilots; but there are no old bold pilots!"
There is some truth to this thought, and those of us who have been lucky enough to be pilots, and have scared themselves just a few times in the air, understand the truth of this expression.
