I flew a Rearwin Cloudster from the thirties back around 1948, but learned to fly in a Piper J3 on floats in 1947 and soloed in 4:45 .  That was about 32,000 hours ago .  However I flew for the airlines for 36 years in DC-3 thru Boeing 727.  Received the FAA Master Pilot award around three years ago.  I will take a flight review this week to fly Light Sport as I'm only 86.

Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on( for the full details.

Have a nice day.

Miss Mary Thomas.
