Leif in the Gyro Machines - May 29, 1991 - Colorado Springs, CO - Age 16
When Peter Anthony graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy at the end of May 1991, we spent several days in Colorado Springs for all the events and to do some sightseeing.
Leif was particularly interested in the aircraft the did flyover and the gyro rides. He always loved things that provided an adrenaline thrill and these certainly did.
The Saturn ride was at a local mall there and he had to pay for it, but the third one at the bottom was in a training room at the Air Force Academy and he got to tr it out there free.
Leif was able to maintain his equilibrium well and except for his nearsightedness, he would have made a fine pilot.
