Walterville, OR


Old guy trying to learn new things, see my website for details -- sort of.

Off and on, in an attempt to keep my aging brain active, I'm rewriting in JavaScript an application I originally wrote in C for DOS in 1988 to do weight & balance calculations for large cargo aircraft (primarily 747s, which I used to captain). Go to http://wb.terryliittschwager.com to access it. It's usable, but the last stage of development, automatic allocation of a load, isn't yet in it.

Also, at http://terryliittschwager.com/flying.php is another on again, off again project, sort of a mini-memoir of my 30 years of flying. It's very much an off an on effort.

And at http://terryliittschwager.com/novel.php is an unpublished novel I wrote many years ago. It's not primarily a flying story, but flying a 747 is involved. The protagonist hijacks a 747 freighter. The 747 detail starts in chapter 28 in Bangkok, proceeds through Hong Kong's old Kai Tak airport, to the conclusion of the flight where the airplane burns on the runway at Half Moon Bay, California after having flown under the Golden Gate bridge with only two engines operating.
