Ryno's Final Landing - Full Stop Where It All Started

Yesterday I finished my military aviation career, landing on the wing in Tallahassee, Florida where my flying career began at Detachment 145 at Florida State University.

A fitting way to finish twenty years of military aviation.  Thanks fellas of Ryno 81 flight for leading me back to the land of the Noles and clearing me off.

Great litho Hawks of the Night.  It's a keeper.  Especially that paragraph from Sea Bass.  Touching.

I really enjoyed my final solo flight, but this sortie was even better.  Out!
