  1. Huggy are you a CA on the 777? Do you fly 2 CA/1 FO or 1 CA/2 FO or 2/2? Is everyone in the cockpit for TO/LD? Ex UAL "570"
  2. Easy to go into the "salvage mode" when you're alone. First leg of my first flight as a newly minted Bus CA landing at the shortest field (SNA) in our system I fu*k'd the approach and somehow had the fortitude to go around. 20+ years later I still have nightmares of trying to salvage the approach and going off the end of the runway. Heck, even this morning I went around in my trusty RV.....I was high but at least I was fast.
  3. Huggy, let me guess....you flew all 4 of those years?
  4. +1 for the Halo. Would not fly with anything else. No interference wearing a hat or sunglasses. Light and comfortable.
  5. My FE and ATP ratings (paid via GI Bill) gave me two classes worth at Riddle.
  6. While going to the U of Hawaii I majored in sailing ( no shit 3 yrs sailing scholarship) and struggled thru business school after dropping out of engineering. Took five years to graduate (who graduates from U of H in 4?) and was a DG out of UPT. Go figure. Studying hard for an exam:
  7. I am in AZ and need a Flight Review. Can pay with toilet paper, masks, and/or Purell.
  8. Glad to see another Ron Fogleman fan and totally agree as being one of the best. He brought back "Crud" to the Polly bar when he became the Division CC at DM in '85.
  9. Re the vid: Friends don't let friends buy 150hp Cardinals.
  10. I had an '88 RV-4 for 20 years and was always tinkering. Purchased a 2010 RV-8 5 years ago and it has been pretty much gas and go. Newer RV's seem to be set up better. Define your mission. RV's are not as solid as a spam can. Flew mine MN---> AZ in one day and I was still vibrating when I went to bed but would never trade it. My -8 is the last plane I will ever fly.
  11. That says it all. Careful who you run with on layovers.
  12. Lyle was on my no-fly list prior to the incident. Having said that we were glad he was able to overcome all obstacles and return. Great credit to the CEO Dasburg.

    47 years with USAA and NO claims auto or home with the exception of windshield replaced last year. Getting the runaround on a house claim now. It ain't the same USAA of old.
  14. Huggy I was wondering how long it would take them to catch on. You better be using my checklists! TDY to Honduras. The Hondurans were transitioning from the F-86 to the A-37!
