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 was born: The Great Planes.

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 have a way with words and a wealth of experience.

I bring a unique perspective to the aviation industry. With a degree in broadcast journalism and a passion for flight and travel, I live for this. I spent several years working in television news and have held communications positions in the nonprofit, private and government industries.

Come fly with me.

I’m a firm believer that the best stories are the ones that don’t come easy… they’re the ones you have to dig for.
