Hey OSC and/or Texas Viking...

With all th merger talk going on, is the new name gonna be Eukanental or Continited?


:D


I think a great name would be "Continted".  Whadya think?  Might have to change the spelling, but Contented has a nice ring, huh?

You know FedEx and UPS are merging, too.....  FEDUP EXPRESS

There are some other more colorful ones out there but they're not for prime time....

Those are funny, OSC!  I'd love to hear some of the other more "colorful" titles.

Here's another blast from the past.  Now, remember this was many years ago...around 1980 or so.  I actually got some "stick time" in a B-Cal 747 on the way back from LGW to IAH.  Yeah, no kidding!  It's a long story, but true.  In this day and age, people would be horrified to hear of a kid in the cockpit "flying" the aircraft.  One of the cool things about that experience was passing a Delta L-1011 heading the other direction.  We had just crossed the Mississippi River, and the Captain pointed out the Tri-star approaching us.  Given the separation requirements, it was still the closest I've ever seen another "heavy" in flight.

I'll post more later but here's the new speed record for our GPSr...note the altimeter...we were at FL390 (39,000ft) on the way over to Orlando but the 60CSx gets a little flaky with the altimeter settings....(more on that later, too...)

That's cool.  When we were in Everett last summer, we toured the Boeing factory, but the 787 area was off-limits.  Their Future of Flight center there at the factory (where the tours start) had a mock-up of the 787 cabin.

I will be jumping this summer back in Chicago, I miss it a lot!

I should be able to push past 400 jumps this summer. I'm at 364 I think.

Thanks for the pic.
