This weekend Mrs VJ and I attended the Promotion, Award of Wings and Mess Dinner for our second son and six course mates. He flies helicopters and will fly Search and Rescue at the same base as his elder brother. First son (Captain RCAF) and Fourth son (pilot in training) and sundry girlfriends/fiancées also attended.

No 1 son has just (Thursday) completed a mountain flying course. Imagine flying down a descending canyon only three rotors wide way, way down inside it and landing on a rocky ledge half way down. Serious fun stuff.

Altogether a wonderful weekend.

I remember my parents' pride when I was awarded my wings - to have that twice, and more to come, must be amazing for you. My heartiest congratulations :ok:
