    ..I'm thinking he was a little cramped in the aircraft....??....6' 2''...etc ..had to bend down a lot? ..no wonder he was an arm wrestling champ ....and I thought they didn't have that anymore.....but, they do....not too popular though?
    ..interesting caption there....''inspiration to the youngsters'''.....we need more like that.....
