That's why I have the FO do it. Less prone to having me screw it up.

It's an Airbus though, so I do spend half my time pointing asking what it's doing.

Okay, so the pic is one of my Subs traveling by helicopter, but I promise to post pictures in this thread from the plane when I go abroad in a few weeks.

Kermit flying over Limoux, Langeudoc-Roussillon, France.

Love SQ!

Wow, I really admire you folks who have the need/patience to fly so much! Would drive me wacko. Besides, as a BK amputee, getting through security is always an issue.

I used to fly once in a while to AZ to visit my belligerent brother. Flew a few times to PA to visit my parents. My first air trip was in 1968 from NJ to CA in a 707.

Doubt I'll be flying again.

But I admire you guys who deal with all that travel stuff.

Everytime I have been on one of those something isn't working.

Reading lamp, seat recliner, lavatory issues...

Give me a Boeing any day...
