Dad Post-Yak Flight

For Father's Day '05, I'd arranged for my dad to be taken up in a Yak-11, an old Russian warbird piloted by my friend, Bill Shepherd. He was pretty happy before he went up and extremely happy when he came down. :-) This is Dad, immediately post-flight. He was laughing and grinning for a loooong time and it still makes me smile to think that (through the graciousness of Bill) I was able to give my Dad a special gift.
