About Annie


My name is Annie and I may very well be the biggest aviation enthusiast you’ll ever meet. I also love writing and photography, so I figured… why not merge these loves? And thus, on Jan. 1, 2017, “The Great Planes” was born.

Aviation is in my blood.

My parents met as flight attendants on Eastern Airlines in the early 80s, and my dad spent more than 30 years in the U.S. Air Force, so I don’t think the evolution of this great passion of mine was at all surprising to my family and friends. In fact, they’ve really come to embrace it.

I’m a professional AV geek.

As a historian at The Boeing Company, I am truly and wholeheartedly living my dream. On most nights and weekends, you can find me at an airport, snapping photos and geeking out with other aviation enthusiasts. To say this is my life is an understatement… that’s for sure.

Come fly with me.

With that, I’d like to thank you for choosing to visit The Great Planes. Please contact me with any questions or suggestions. To blue skies and tailwinds.
