Welcome to the Third Dimension Blog. I hope you enjoy the resources here at the 3DB and find value in each of my articles. My primary focus is to connect Aviators, and Aviation Enthusiast, with the past so they can better understand their responsibilities to the future of aviation and those who will follow in their footsteps; however, I do not rewrite history. Instead I highlight specific events that I hope will spark an interest in the reader to dig deeper so that they better understand past events. This, I hope, will create a better understanding of our responsibilities to preserving the history of the aviation pioneers who made it all possible.

Please give me your feedback and suggestions for articles, from time to time, and remember all Aviators/Aviation Enthusiast are:

"Gatekeepers of the Third Dimension."

Life of an Aviator - Volume Two

In volume two of Robert Novell’s short stories Robert once again tries to illustrate how the magic, the freedom, that we earth bound bipeds associate with flight is actually the release of the free spirit. True freedom is magic and therefore this release of all earth bound pressures as you enter the realm of endless blue skies in your winged craft is a free spirit experience shared, and understood, by only a few but wished for by many.

Life of an Aviator - Volume Three

In volume three of Robert Novell’s short stories on the magic of aviation, he will introduce you to a few more of the characters he has flown with over the years as well as introduce you to a few aviation legends who he wished he could have flown with. However, rest assured that each and every one he writes about is one with the “Third Dimension”.
