Of all of them, I liked the one at St Barth’s where he set it down at the captains bars at the FAR end of the runway!

I had a pretty good flight lesson today. I did notice that my flight instructor was typing away on his phone during one of my landings. After I got on the ground I noticed I had an email from him. This was attached to it.  I got a pretty good chuckle out of it.


Bahahaha!!! I’m just a lowly navigator, but I’m gonna send that email to some of our pilots after a day of beating up the pattern. Classic.

Its ALWAYS windy here. I train about 10-12 miles south of DIA and I've NEVER, not once, had a smooth, clear day. Its a bit more noticeable in a Cessna 172, than a Boeing 737.

Mate, when doing your cross country, just don't land at Vandenberg instead of Lompoc!

Vandenberg....funny story. Late 80’s Flew in to LA and decided to drive up the PCH to Monterey for the Historical races. Noticed a bunch of satellite stuff up in the hills as we approached Vandenberg area. We decided we should stop at Vandenberg to see if we could take a public tour or something. We drove up tomthe gate and the nice fellows came out with M16’s. Asked what we wanted. Told them we wanted to take a tour. Nice fellow says”sir this is not a tourist attration” please turn around and leave....OK no problem.

My old instructor always said; “If you’re wondering whether to go around, you already should have!”

I forwarded the link to many aero friends this weekend, and all enjoyed.  Thanks 😁

One friend returned this link.  Hope this doesn't turn into some silly US military political cluster.  Just enjoy it for the high res jet porn that it is.  Turn it up:

I could and do watch that stuff for days. Not political but when I watch these machines I do get a sense of pride. My oldest brother was USAF career E9 stationed at Scott AFB for his last years. For 5or 6 years we went to Open Houes Air Show. Thunderbirds in their Falcons and seeing the F15 make its passes and then tip straight up and go until it was out of sight was awe inspiring. Space Shuttle on its piggyback ride home on top of its 747. Best ever was an SR71. It was unscheduled but passing thru. Low speed pass and then came arount and he also pointed it to the heavens and just..went ! You can’t help but feel proud. RIP Den.
