Friday's Fabulous Flyer

Piper, the Border Collie!


I returned from my trip yesterday, and was a wake for way too many hours, followed by a conference call and tons homework to complete.  One of my statistic projects is Bird Strike analysis and havoc that our winged friends take upon our aircraft.  

A teammate sent me this great article... and you have to love it!  So... Piper get's to be today's Friday Fabulous Flyer!  Take a visit to the Daily Detroit, article by Joel Gullickson, Feb 22, 2016, to see more photos and read the entire article about Piper.  


For me... I am back to work, as I have a busy weekend to finish up everything so I can attend the Women in Aviation Conference next week!!  I hope to see you there. I will be volunteering at the store daily from 1-3:30, and then again at the silent auction booth from 4-6 p.m.  Add this to your schedule to drop and say hello!! 

Have a Great Weekend!

Enjoy the Journey!
