Thank you Ron, for an interesting story. I remember at school start date of Yuri Gagarin, and then I went and was aeronautical engineering, and later became an investigator. And now I and my 11-year-old son fall in love with aviation and everything connected with the cosmos. Good luck and health to you and your family, Ron.
