Had to work this weekend......(pics of Baltimore/Winnepeg)

At least the view didn't suck.

Got a pic of Baltimore (the stadium had the lights on) and a bit of Winnepeg for anyone who's interested.

I didn't have the pleasure of dropping in there. I just noticed (a little too late) that the weather was clear enough to see the city. It's a shame I didn't realize it sooner and get a better pic. We could see EVERYTHING.

Re: Had to work this weekend......(pics of Baltimore/Winnepeg)

Beautiful pics. I am sorry that you had to work though. Hey, I'll be your backup just as soon as you get the spinners installed!

Seriously, I wish I could still fly for a living. Enjoy while you can, and look out for that Santa guy who is going to mess up flight plans pretty soon.

Official Racer Dude Guy, according to a neighborhood 6 year old.

Sorry you're not flying. What happened?

We're short of funds as it is, and I don't think spinners are on the list. Maybe I can learn to use the hydraullic systems to bounce the nose into the air.

Yeah, the commercial market is out for me too.

It's like most other jobs. Very satisfying and even fun at times, but it sucks at others. I've been to bed once since Thurs night if that makes you feel any better.

DOes it ever feel like you're just driving a big bus? Or is it always a thrill to fly?

And then there's this asshole...

There are so many things to know about the plane, regulations, instruction, etc... that I don't think it will ever feel like driving a bus. While we do carry passengers, our main mission is to move stuff. Accomplishing the mission, and knowing that you've delivered things that can make a big difference to a lot of people (especially our troops) keeps it interesting and rewarding.

Admittedly, it does get boring sometimes. Especially when you've been up for 20+ hours and you know you've got a long way to go on a night route. Boring can be good though. We're paid the bucks to know what to do and how to handle the situation when/if the and it happens more than I care to talk about.

Coffee is a big help, and I try to keep in mind that I'll be home soon. However, we've got folks who are away for a year or more that are in much less comfortable conditions. I try to remember that whenever I feel like bitching.
