it's not quite what you thought it'd be.

the best part is when the dude walks out, minus an o-ring, into a small room with 18 men and women and 12 printers jamming away all of whom are having to stand their and smell what you did and act like they don't notice.

oh where has the romance of this career gone!?
"Down the toilet?" Barump bump.

When we get hot FAs again, I bet our bathrooms get upgraded.

but at least they promised they'd try!


That's just poor airmanship. A pro pilot knows to buy a ton of eagle powerups before push that way every level is total destruction like it ain't no thang.

What? Don't h8 the player.

I truly appreciate your service along with all the other brave men and women that have fought and died for this nation. However, your current position is a civilian one with the rest of us civilians. If you are still in the guard or reserve feel free to use the military brevity codes where you can be sure everyone will understand your transmission. For the the sake of situational awareness in a busy airspace system I would like to understand the transmissions of the people I am sharing airspace with.
JUDY, JUDY!

I kid, I kid...I'll go ahead an nominate myself as tool of the day for this !

But I bet you they'd laugh if you tried it in an Aeromexico pilot lounge.

Let us know.
He would first tell you he went to the Air Force Academy and flew in the Thunderbirds. They can't order coffee from Starbucks without telling the Barista, again. You know, the Thunderbirds never wore Sombreros, except this time ... hey did I tell you I went to the Academy? ... yes Sir, ... can I go now?

While you walk away a photo & three video files of you wearing the "non standard hat" would be sent to Mike Campbell with a question regarding whether this could be construed as an "illegal job action." Project pilots would be assigned to identify you and speculate as to what kind of nefarious plot you might be hatching.

A week later a Line Check Airman would be on your jumpseat asking about Pancho Villa and Mexican Outlaws. You would wonder why you've gotten four line checks in three days:


Come to think of it, probably better put on the hat, tighten the tie, then grab the current McRib, check the mailbox, walk quickly past the CPO (ignoring the candy, ear plugs and other pilot bait) and live to fight another day. Giving Thunderbird guy the "Shocker" while having my hand in my coat pocket is about as ziggy as I get with it.

Success - when you retire and everyone goes "who was that ?"

I think you're wrong, and I'm perfectly willing to risk DeadHead's job to prove it.
