No. It was a random encounter at Lake Charles Terminal Radar Approach Control.Herman Cain
flew into the airport in a radial engine Bi-Wing aircraft, and he parked it between the control tower and the general aviation operations building.
He asked for a tour of the tower and radar facility before he shut the engine down, so we (FAA) authorized it and opened up the break-room door about 50 feet from where he was parked.
He used our facilities to change clothes, get a rental car, and while he waited for it to arrive, he toured the radar room and the control tower.
He asked many good questions about our operation and we talked about many things.
He spoke of being diagnosed with cancer and how his family really helped him, as he prepared to fight it.
He talked of prayer and how that had given him strength and motivation.
He was with us for about 30 minutes before he left in the rental car to do a surprise inspection of Burger King.
He returned about 3 hours later, spent another thirty minutes with us while the aircraft was being prepped.
There was only about 5 of us on duty during his visit, and we all had ample opportunity to talk about whatever we wished.
He really is a pleasant and bold man, very easy to talk to.
He's a highly skilled private pilot, also.

Thanks for the info.
Its nice to get meaningful conversation about a topic.
My topic was to get help with opinions about the candidates.
I have never voted for a single Democrat in my life.
bfree - just seems to be a nasty person.

What in the dickens does IBTZ mean
Ill just say your post sucks, a waste of time to read your thoughts. I cant imagine why anyone would care about your analysis, I know I dont care for meaningless tripe.

Your first post ever is a vanity thread smearing the GOP candidates?
