I started The Great Planes on January 1, 2017, after countless conversations with my husband about how I could do something meaningful with my unwavering passion for flight.
I’ve since written nearly 50 blog posts, and posted almost 1,500 photos to Instagram. I’ve learned a lot about aviation and I’ve learned even more about the world and its people.
I’ve been put to work running flight strips at the MSP Air Traffic Control tower, been driven around many an airfield—my favorites being Schipol and O’Hare—and I’ve sat in my fair share of cockpits—the KLM 747 takes the cake.
I’ve even met in person roughly a dozen of my followers, and now consider many of them good friends.
The creation and growth of TGP has been chock-full of adventures and milestones, the most recent of which just occurred a week ago when my Instagram account surpassed FIVE THOUSAND FOLLOWERS!
This is hugely exciting and humbling, and as a “thank you” I’m doing my first ever GIVEAWAY!
You heard right. Head to my Instagram page to find out how YOU can win one of three TGP T-shirts featuring my new logo, designed by my greatly talented friend, Ashley! The contest ends Sunday, Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. CT.
Thanks again to my family and friends—old and new—for supporting me as I fulfill my dreams.
