At the age of 23, Shane became the youngest captain in airline history (at that time) on a commercial airliner. At last count, he had logged more than 8,000 hours of flight time. During the summer of 1994 he led the "Arctic Siberian Expedition" from Moscow to Magadan in a pair of Antonov An-2 biplanes. This year he hopes to fly the biplanes back to his home in Oregon.
