I just got notice they posted a link to my speech from the Living Legends of Aviation Gala last January and wanted to share it with everyone. Not so much for the Award, which I already posted on my blog, but for the message it conveyed. If you watch it you will see why I’m so passionate about what I’m doing with Fantasy of Flight. I had typed my speech out for reference prior to the Gala to use for reference but when I arrived early at the Beverly Hilon, I poked my head in as they were setting up for the event and they asked me if I wanted to use the teleprompter! I had never seen one before and got a chance to practice my speech once. It was a lot of fun and I thought I went on to do a great job later that evening!
The link includes an introductory video they played to set me up, introductions from Sean Tucker and Bob Hoover, and then my acceptance speech. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ5xEX9nyGw.
