I would apply too but I donít think the pay would cover the bills... Student loans are a killer.

I would still apply and start a dialogue if possible. It can't hurt and you can always tell them the pay is to low.

What was the story on the World War 1 airplane ditched/crashed in the water at 17:49? What kind of plane was it?

If I remember right, it was a replica Sopwith Camel. The day before it had engine loss on takeoff at Wausau, WS. and into the drink. The pilot survived and orange cones were from the NTSB.

Good to hear the pilot was okay and it was just a replica and not the real deal.

What's the back story on the ship with a section of bridge wrapped around it's bow @14:38? Where was that at? Looks serious!

We stumbled across the ship a day after the incident. It happened on the TN KY boarder- Land Between the Lakes. I heard later from the news that they were passing through there at night and the Captain thought he was at a higher section of the bridge. From my stand point of 500ft, it didn't look like he could make it through any section of the bridge. No injuries or deaths, but heard locals were ****ed because the next closet bridge was 30 or so miles away.

Thanks for sharing! I just stumbled across this post. Where you home based when you flew the Caravan? Sounds like it was a great job!

It was a good job, but a lot of time on the road living out of suitcases. Turnover was high. I was the "old timer" when I left.....I made it 5 years.
