The guy who asked "which way are you planning on going around that?"

That was a cumulus cloud.... 10,000' below us while we were climbing. And when I say cumulus, I use that term lightly as it topped off at 12,000'.

Turbulence was just not his thing. The rest of the trip was like that.

Sink, I don't think what I posted qualifies as tool material. Just wimpy material.

This one may not count, because it's only a legend and all witnesses are long retired, but one Captain refused to "ident" when ATC requested it. Apparently he had once lost an engine right after indenting, and didn't want to take any chances....

I wish I worked for a company that had thousands of pilots! I'm at a small shop and go-figure our tool would frequent this site! Pure tool awesomeness though. I'm working on the courage.

God bless you, for you are is the Resistance against a powerful Tool. Good luck.

Stay in hiding. Nothing angers a tool more than to recognize himself in your words. If he notices that the Force is strong in you, he will know from whom the post came.
