Does not beat a Planet Airways First Officer wearing his full uniform trawling the mall in Rochester on a Saturday. What was really funny about the get up was the fancy white silk scarf hanging off his shoulders... you know the one that people wear with their tuxedos!!! To dress it all off... a pair of Ray-Bans. At least the glass case was not threaded through his belt.

Good old NB... what a pistol. I wonder if NB is wearing his Jet Blue F/O uniform trawling the malls?

I'm sure that will evoke a bunch of memories of good old NB.

Me and my friend for showing up in suits to fly a 172 (as a joke, never do this normally). Wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't flown back from my destination without the journey log and all it's documents, and yes I took them there

Yes, that's the new training technique for an instrument rating. You start the student gradually, with "IMC Walking", to ease his fears.

ATC gives you two Altitudes to choose from, one is above the Aircraft limitation, yet the CAPT still want to verbalize to you (working the radio) which ALT to answer! DUH! Thanks CAPT obvious
