Who hasn’t dreamed of being a pilot? (Or in my case, still dreaming.)

These are the pilots of the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT). They fly important people around to different parts of the state. Governors, state officials, and university people, to name a few. They are all former military pilots and if you corner one of them in a tex-mex restaurant, you’ll hear some amazing stories. I certainly have during the time I’ve spent with them.

We did some individual and group shots, and then they let me do my thing on one of the King Airs sitting in the hangar. A couple of times you might have even heard me mumble, “Talk to me Goose. Talk to me.“¬†Goodness gracious great balls of fire.
