Neil's Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award

Big doin's at our small airport today:
The FAA Inspector awarded me the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award for 50 years in aviation/aircraft maintenance. We had about 50 people attend for the ceremony, and I got to give a short re-cap of my years in aviation. I was kinda overwhelmed. My brothers & sister all came in for the occasion A good day!!
