GF: “Pull the stick back, plane goes up. Turn left, plane tilts left, turn right, plane turns right. Understood?”
Pilot: “Er..excuse me Colonel, but how do we go down?”
GF: “Never mind that, leave that to NATO.”

But, this can’t be all that good in the far north during the winter months (or the far south, for that matter).

“Lamar, it’s Christmas Eve; fly me home!”

“Okay, boss; you have four hours of flight time.”

Now, at the equator, this isn’t all that bad. It’s very consistent; twelve hours of flying a day, period.

Next time we are going to have Lamar and Eugene “You Light Up My Life” Johnson run around on the wing with a few flashlights. Problem sol-ved. And hey, we can now expand into night flights! Gawsh I love this job! 😀

first you check the almanac for sunny days; and if the weather changes, do you stay at work or leave a day early and act as thought it were planned?

Oh, and it’s hot in the plane and they are Belgians. I hope the seats are fabric covered or the passengers will be sliding all over once they decide to get nekid in the heat!

What? Yeah, he says he has experience. His name is Icarus.
