70th Birthday Bash pictures are viewable...!
The slide show program wouldn't let me place all pictures into one album, therefore I had to split them into two presentations; Album 1 above and Album 2 below.
Click anywhere within the picture frame or text. Once in, click on "Slideshow" to advance pictures after 4 second delay. You can change the speed by clicking the down arrow and selecting the speed you want.
To get back to our website home page, click the "back arrow" several times until you're in.
75th Birthday Party coming in 2018
Get ready for our 75th Birthday Celebration in 2018...! Details coming soon.
6/8/2013 A message from Lynn Pollard Stevens on turning 70. Yikes...!
Now, it's 2013, and I've turned 70 !!! For a low-key celebration, my two "kids" took me on a 3-day cruise out of Long Beach. We kayaked off Catalina Island and rode horses in Ensenada, Mexi
. . .
The picture is of my last flight before retirement (came in from Tokyo's Narita airport to Detroit) on a 747-400. The first officer is Paul DeBushere(sp). His distant uncle was a coach for the Phoenix Suns, if my memory serves me correctly.
I went to college at Phoenix College, and then to ASC (at the time). Graduated from there and was hired by Boeing in Seattle. As I had a double major in math and physics, and was on the Dean's List... Boeing was happy to get me. Worked on the 747 design, then the 737 design, and some on the SST. I was flying after work and built up my time. I went to work at the local airline when Boeing slowed down. After 3 mergers, 14 CEO's, 5 or 6 companies, while never changing jobs, I hit the big time. Just in the right place at the right time.
The thing I am most proud of is I retired off of the plane that I helped design and build-the Boeing 747. Nobody, in my 37 years of flying, can say anything close to that. And I am not finished.
I am building a Piper Super Cub right now. It should be flying next summer. I guess construction, and building is in my blood. People just don't think along the same lines as I do. When I get to talking to somebody with little or no background, I just tell them I used to drive an 18 wheeler. The questions usually stop there.
I retired from Northwest Airlines in December 2003, kept my place in Arizona and have a beautiful place in South Anchorage with my plane parked in my back yard. Aviation in Alaska is better and the outdoors is still available. The scenery is unbeatable; I'm one mile from the ocean, 7 minutes by plane from salmon fishing and duck hunting, in an income tax-free state, with no sales tax in Anchorage. Add to that, I get a property tax break for being old, with lifetime hunting, fishing, and trapping license FREE.
Since I am retired, I winter in Arizona. As I am always traveling, it is real easy to see what is going on, here and in the world.
