Congratulations to Ken Ross who successfully managed a ditching in the Gulf of Mexico on December 4. Ken is a life-long pilot and a retired Brigadier General in the Air National Guard. Although his flying career included jet fighters like the F-15, water landings were not part of his training. Fortunately for him and everyone on board, Ken is a quick learner!
The mishap that could have been a tragedy delayed Ken’s arrival at the Seale & Ross Christmas Party held that evening. He made it to the party by 9 p.m., still dressed in the orange jumpsuit provided him by the oil rig crew that fished him and his passengers out of their life raft in the Gulf of Mexico.
