PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Linda Yapez, Edward J. Peterson Air and Space Museum docent, leads children from the Starbase Academy on a tour of the city hanger Feb. 14, 2018 at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo. Yapez says that leading tours for children is her favorite because of how excited and inquisitive they are. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Alexis Christian) For the love of planes
Her love for aircraft started at a young age, beginning with the love her father felt, and shared, toward the planes he saw in the military. From there her infatuation bloomed as she attended air shows she saw with her father, her then husband, and now with her children. When she retired two years ago from interior decorating, she had no idea what she wanted to do with her time. By chance, one newspaper brought her to a new stage in her life.
