I never won at that on the 440, took me a while to figure out the station agent was involved. I was able to find a gallon of prop wash though.......

Where does American find these guys.
I wonder if he told American that he really didn't want to be an airline pilot in the interview.

Mover,

Just one observation.

It's the Union that is responsible for those pay numbers you referred to. Same goes for a lot of the procedures and reduction in duties that makes the job boring at times. Thank the Union or not having to show up on off days to work the ticket counter or lost bag room. It's a new world for most new hires, welcome aboard.

(I see we're still getting the big suite down south. I think it took me 20 minutes to lock all the doors and windows. Too bad it's such a short night, that place would make a great party pad)

Cheers

All valid points. I agree completely. I was trying to show more of the contrast/transition more than anything. But you’re right.

Thanks!

Mover, Love the vids, especially the fini flight live drop, and the final closed pattern "Ah, just one more."
I intend to check out your books soon. #62 on Amazon overall is pretty darn good.

A fellow ALO/CC buddy of mine was an F-14 RIO, got passed over for Regular commish during Tailhook, then went F-111s until that jet went away, then Strike Eagles. "Make 'em tell you no."

Best of luck on Adversary air.

And yet he’s at a major and you’re not. You’re barking up the wrong tree home slice.

All good. I think you sniffed out the best part of the job,

It will allow you to do anything you want. (Except buy beers as FO with me, seen your face on youtube)
