Good luck to us all and lets hope the new airline turns out to be a powerhouse!
And somewhere, off in the distance towards MSP and DTW, Steals and Crofts can be heard strumming "Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind".

And we all collectively mellow and rest easy that no furloughs are going to happen, fleets will be maintained, and sweet destinations such as Grand Forks from the north and Mobile from ATL will still be served by the venerable noise of the JT8s. It's been a LONG time since I had to do a noise abatement departure, I'm just hoping it will still be a long time.
