  •  Interesting stuff --- I have an old army buddy (4+ / 0-)

    who flies the Airbus for A Major Airline ( go figure -- he's, as I said, an Army reservist - no AF background at all. More to the odd pile, the current CO of his reserve unit is also a commercial pilot - cargo ). I know he likes it ( and has a huge amount of experience with it -- when it first came into service he was one of the guys who ran the simulator/trainer for those making the transition - a mixed bag of both Douglas and Boeing jocks ), and given that he not only has been on the Europe routes he's, of late he's been doing Sydny. He has to have an impressive accumulation of hours by now!

     You have given me some stuff to throw at him when we get together for an annual dinner next month. I might actually be able to fake that I know what I'm talking about for a couple of minutes.....which is two minutes longer than normal.....

    it tastes like burning...
