I took off that afternoon in the Bus out of SLC and was thinking, "Glad I have nice equipment to fly on days like this."
I went through recurrent training last month and my an instructor, an old Pan Am guy was our instructor. He's been around a long time and seen/done most, if not all of it. After reading this tedious technical slide from a PowerPoint presentation on how a certain computer takes readings of certain conditions around the plane, he paused, looked up at us and said, "Guys, when the weather if F****ed up, be careful!" Sage advise.
“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
