The Aviation Zone was created by Mike Neely and launched on 15 October 1997. It has come a long way since its humble beginnings, and many thanks go out to those people and organizations world-wide that helped make it all possible!
Mike served honorably as a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy loadmaster in the United States Air Force for 8 years and accrued over 3,000 flying hours. Assigned to the 9th (Military) Airlift Squadron,
Dover AFB, Delaware, USA, he was offered many wonderful experiences...like visiting over 50 countries on five continents and participating in two military conflicts (Operations Desert
Storm and Restore Hope) and several humanitarian relief missions.
