As the spring sports season heads into its final stretch, the Massapequa High School boys’ baseball squad, long a Nassau County powerhouse, has been playing just a notch above .500, while the boys’ volleyball team is going through an undefeated season.
Feel the adrenalin pumping, pressing, and pulsing through your veins. The world is twisting, turning, and tumbling before your eyes as you look through the small window of a cockpit. With a jolt, the plane stops with its nose facing the clouds and the aircraft slowly begins to fall backwards. To the average person this is a thrill-seeking move, an act of outright insanity. To an aerobatics pilot like David Windmiller this is just another everyday experience.
