FIRST FLYING LESSON
Grand Prairie Airport, Grand Prairie, Texas
That's me in the back seat of this Piper J3 Cub, about to go out on my first flying lesson. The guy in the front is Carl Frenzel, who would become my flight instructor when I took up lessons for real the summer after High School graduation. This would be one of the hairiest takeoffs of my flying career. I kept at it, though.
