"A single lifetime, even though entirely devoted to the sky, would not be enough for the study of so vast a subject.  A time will come when our descendants will be amazed that we did not know things that are so plain to them."

Another great day at the office, with some incredible work by our team today.

Number of Takeoffs = Number of Landings...always a great metric for measuring success.
