As he got to the airfield, he asked the operations if they have ever had such a Kiowa with the tail number written on the aircraft – the one he was sitting at when being just 8 years old. That very same aircraft was not sitting on the ramp on that very same airfield base the guy was working at. So, he was actually been flying that specific Kiowa this past month.
So, twenty years later he was flying the exact aircraft that made him become a pilot! What an inspiring story!
