To my fellow Americans….Happy 4th of July!!!

Cleveland, Ohio - 4th of July!

Cleveland, Ohio – 4th of July!

Here’s a few easy preparedness tips from the team at FEMA.

  • Leave the fireworks to the pros.
  • Keep children & pets at least 3 ft from grills & campfires.
  • Drink plenty of water – even if you don’t feel thirsty.
  • Check in on friends, family, & neighbors who don’t air conditioning.

And for those who are stuck inside/have to work, here’s a few fun option for you.

Maybe NYC is better?

No? How about Chicago?

Well, whatever you do, just keep it real safe everyone.

Happiest birthday to the greatest country in the world. #USA

America the beautiful.

Run like hell?!?! #Fireworks

I’m no genius, but if your fireworks say this…

…then you likely could get hurt. So please PLEASE be careful this 4th of July holiday.

Also, fireworks are expensive. Leave it to the pros.

Here’s a quick news story with my friend Euclid Fire Capt Jay Northup on the dangers of fireworks who was injured a few months ago in NE Ohio. (click on the picture)

Fire Captain Jay Northup suffered a severe head injury, two ruptured eardrums, second-degree burns, and multiple bruises and cuts requiring 35 stitches after an accident involving fireworks. AMERICAN ACADEMY OF OPHTHALMOLOGY

Again, I would highly recommend that you leave the fireworks to the pros.

Cleared for departure from RAP with special clearance

Really enjoying the All-American themes lately. And this week has been no exception.


It was suggested that I get an aerial perspective when I depart. So clearing it with Ellsworth Approach, our pilots planned a quick figure 8 pass on our departure out of RAP.


I only wish I had my DSLR. Don’t worry Maverick, the pattern wasn’t full. Chillax!

Special thanks to the All-American flight crew today #Merica !

Now on to Florida!
