There are so many articles about bad things happening around the world it is really good to see someone like this make the best out of life and being able to do something special to help remember it... Would love to have his tail number so we can track him on Flight Aware.

It is my hope that each of you can find something to do to celebrate your self when the time comes and I wish everyone here the continuing health to beable to do so.

I thought that you cold track just on tail number as long as they were viewable by center's radar and had a transponder.
