    John,
    You're going to have to stop mentioning all the wonderful places you fly to . You're making me jealous. Sunny SB doesn't quite compare to your various destination.

    Hey.... they just laid one on today..... a "wonderful" trip to Omaha from Omaha westbound. That's upwind..!!!! I thought we had them trained.

    Think I should clue Cloud Dancer in on the US$6 foot massage place in Shanghai..? I consider it medical therapy to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis..!!

    As a flyin' friend once told me, "get over it, LIFE is a headwind"

    A CL604, aka Bombardier Challenger...... mostly fun, but sometimes anything but. Securing the aircraft that night was a real challenge, no pun intended.

    My grandson recently told me, "Papa, you just go on mini-vacations when you work..... in fact, you get paid to look out the window." I just looked at him and said, "and your point is?" Of course, not a month goes by that he doesn't ask me if the airplane needs a test hop.

    I'll be in Denmark in late August. Maybe we can figure a way to meet up. I could arrange landing in Roskilde rather than Kastrup if you want to fly over.
