I retired from the USAF as a LtCol and ended my fighter pilot career with 38 years and three combat tours with a total of 586 combat missions.

Outside of my military flying I flew for Western and Delta Airlines and retired from Delta as a Boeing 777 captain after 35 years. I have over 35,000 flight hours 7700 of those in single-seat fighters and the remaining time in numerous other aircraft. I love sharing the sky with others and I look forward to flying with you at Vintage Flights.

I have loved airplanes and flying since I took my first breath.  There’s no greater thrill as a pilot than that micro second when the wheels of your aircraft, regardless of what you’re flying, leave this Earth and you’re FLYING!! – Jim Lawrence
