"Baron" is a 13 year old Moluccan Cockatoo who flies with me in my airplane. He sits on a car seat perch next to me in the copilot's seat. He enjoys the ride except when it gets bumpy.

He's pictured here sitting on the propeller and waiting while I do the preflight inspection. The picture was taken in Miami prior to a flight to South Carolina.

I love it!

I love your story, it seems to me that this bird is really your Pal. I also like your clear style of writing. Does he speaks? Does he yell sometimes? Do you fasten his seat-belt? Do you trim his feathers and crest? I put you these questions because I'd love to see him flying with you. Put some more pictures.

Next time you fly up by the Panhandle give a big M2 yell and I'll release Magnolia to join you... She loves to fly and she'll catch up....
