To me, the most exciting aviation story of 2009 was my own. I finally was able to purchase a ready to fly Ultralight and began flying it. After years of preparation, and being held up by Sport Pilot and money issues (Not enough of it), I am doing what this is all about, I'm flying.

To me the most exciting aviation story was Canadian Centennial of Flight, where Canada celibrated 100 years of aviation in Canada 1909-2009. Vintage Wings rebuilt and flew Hawk 1 ( F-86) Saber and flew it on the Snow Birds tour this year.
