Congrats Ken.

Ken was my tour guide/pilot for test ride during my visit at vans a few years back. He also shares a name first and last with my dad.

Well deserved Ken.

Default Ken was...

..the guy who gave me my $30k ride way back when we had to mine our own aluminum, roll it into sheets, etc.

Good for you, Ken and what do you have planned aviation-wise in your retirement?

Jerry

Wow. That is amazing. How do we do a Vulcan mind meld and get all of that information out of his head????

Congrats to you, Ken!

Default Dear Ken..

..please leave a downloaded copy of all your knowledge on an external hard drive, before clearing out your desk. It would also be helpful if you could drop all movie quotes, offensive jokes and useless trivia into a separate folder.
