Here we are... waiting. FO and I have already played a round of parcheesi.





I figure I'd better start teaching my colleagues some German.

Good times! Don't you just love our Gate Planners? I had one park a SAAB at our gate last night on Charlie. It was 2300, every other gate was open (A-F) and they put him on Charlie... We had to hook him up to the pushback and drag him in so the wall unit plus the converter would stretch to the GPU hookup.

Aren't you pointed the wrong direction for 1F? Looks like you're at 3, pointed west.

The TCAS pic is great...

The "morning light" pic is awesome. I have a question about the Saab. Are there 2 sets of throttles? One on the CA side and the other on the FO side? Great pics once again.

It probably was 3E or something. Whatever it was there was another saab sitting there for about 25 minutes... Good times.

My FO and I played...
"I spy with my little eyes, something that begins with... C"

"CLOUDS!"

"Yes!"

One's throttle, the other's the prop control, if that's what you're asking...

Better than the negative-second-rule of places like public restrooms, etc, etc.

Things are done before they even touch the ground...

YUCK!

Guess the macro function of my camera works.

I promise that the Dash 8's don't look like that, unless Seggy has changed things on that side of the company...

I'm not just talking about food here...

Anything that's falling towards the ground in places like that are already picking up things you've never even heard of...
