How did you become interested in aircraft? Since I was a kid. Family members worked for aircraft companies, and I took interest at an early age.

I’ve always been a fan of the AV-8 Harrier. I used to watch them often while I was in the Marine Corps at MCAS Cherry Point, North Carolina. It’s an amazing aircraft!
