I've really enjoyed reading the stories here. I'm 43 and grew up in Brevard, NC just outside of Asheville and used to enjoy watching the YS11s fly in as a kid. My Dad clocked some time in those as a passenger flying for DuPont, and I still remember the distinct sound of the props! I hope you guys keep writing stories. I have fond memories of Piedmont (my first airplane ride) and as I sit here, am enjoying a glass on wine from a little round Piedmont First Class glass. I have a lot of Piedmont memorabilia on my walls in my Man Cave, mostly stuffed I've collected from an early age with an interest in commercial aviation.
Keep the stories coming! They are great!
