This story goes way back. There sure are a lot of current guys who never left when they said they would at 60

Upon nearing age 60 (around 1990), he "discovered" an old family Bible that had his "true" birth certificate inside it. According to it, he was a couple of years younger than he had always thought. Incredibly, he managed to use it to extend his career at UAL a couple more years and feed at the trough (retiring #1 on the 747) that much longer. That's the story. The particulars I don't know, but it did happen.

Sounds like a true scab....still amazes me his picture is hanging in TK and has not been defaced.

Birth certificates seem to be of issue lately.

Last week I didn't make a flight because the only non revs making the flight were SA-1Ps, with a hire date of 1972???????????????????
