|Reporting for duty at ORD on 15 Jan 86. It was 28 degrees below zero and I was wondering if, at those temperatures the job was going to be worth it. You could only do half of a walk-around before having to come in to warm up. Ouch!||My first I.D. - don't tell 'em I still have it :)||Not long after I made captain I took Carol on a trip to PHL. We had a great time even though she got bumped on the first day. She caught up with me at the end of the day.|
|Got fly with J.T. a couple of times. Always fun to fly with a squadron-mate. Also got to fly with Gary "Mongo" Taylor once to DSM. Thanks to J.T. for the rest of the pictures.||I really enjoyed flying with guys from the squadron. They always took good care of their captain and kept me out of trouble :)||Cruisin' to 'who knows where' at FL260.|
|Bust your hump to land on time and then wait an extra 20 minutes for catering at the gate!||Flying in aluminum tubes - BORing :)||Nice panorama shot by J.T. FL260.|
|So here's what it looks like in the air... I wonder what all those knobs and switches do?||Another panorama shot - top to bottom.||
I love this one! The top ten conversations between ORD Center and cockpits. Others:
1. "Cessna 123 I'm way too busy for you to cancel on me now."
2. "Cessna 123 put your compass on 'E' and get out of my airspace."
