In Love With Flying
In Love With Flying
In this memoir, Kenneth Ford provides tales from his own fifty years of flying light airplanes and gliders, and he profiles various aviators he has met along the way, people who impressed him with their passion for flying and who brought a special style to their love affair with flying. This book is for anyone of any age who is thinking about becoming a pilot, or is already one, or who just appreciates the romance of the air. It's more than a collection of anecdotes. Ford is a teacher, and here you will learn, in non-technical language, about the kinds of lift that keep gliders aloft, the idiosyncrasies of "tail-dragger" airplanes, the art of landing in a crosswind, how pilots get from A to B, and more.

After two months inside the duck pavillion, Snowy and Spirit were the first two of the four new kids that were allowed to explore Foppe's Acre for the first time yesterday. It was great fun for them and besides exciting and frightening, it was fun for me too:-) I never meant to keep them locked up for such a long time but since Sadie and Suki (their little sisters) needed to be able to fly too before I released them into the yard, it took longer than I expected. But Snowy was ready to take the plunge, she started to have long chats with the ducks on the outside and was making nests inside the pen, she is a real grown up girl now. Spirit and Snowy are really close so I decided to let them out first, four new faces in the yard would be a little overwhelming for our flock, so Suki and Sadie will remain inside to keep Snuggles company for a couple more weeks. I've waited with the introduction of the new kids untill the older ducks would be molting. They are much more placid during molt and can't fly, so the new kids would have a good chance of being accepted and could escape the others when they would come too close. My plan only partially worked because not all ducks are grounded and some of them already had new flight feathers, but it was the best I could do. It was a nice calm and sunny day so I stayed outside all afternoon to keep an eye on things. I'm glad that I did because I had to interfere a couple of times and wanted to make sure Snowy and Spirit knew where the boundaries of Foppe's Acre were. Muscovies are sweet and intelligent ducks but can be pretty nasty too, specially to newcomers. They have to make sure the new kids know who is boss and where their place in the duck hyarchy is, so there was some heavy fighting and chasing going on. I felt sorry for the girls, but I had to let it happen or else they would never learn and wouldn't get accepted into the flock. I did step in between them a couple of times though. Snowy and Spirit had a nice first day outside but late in the afternoon Snowy wanted to have a break and went back in the pen to catch her breath. Spirit joined her at dinner time so I locked them back in for the night to release them again this morning. But it is storming in Friesland today and I can't go outside to keep watch, so they will stay indoors for another day. It will take a little while before everyone is happy with this new turn of events, and in a couple of weeks we will start all over again when Sadie and Sukie will leave the duck hotel;-)

Ford, by his count, has flown 55 different models of aircraft; carried nearly 700 different people as passengers; and landed in more than 450 different places, from New York's La Guardia and Chicago' O'Hare to dirt strips and a few pastures in the west. He logged 4,500 hours as a pilot and earned a diamond soaring badge.
