No, I didn't imagine the starry Concorde paint job I was sure I'd seen in a book.

Special 20th-anniversary paint job applied to F-BVFB at TLS. I assume it never flew, but would love to be proved wrong.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

And another Concorde one: SAA had their titles on a BA bird.

Management at my Apartment Complex will allow me to install an exterior security camera.

Now, the identity of "Goodie Bag Dropper" will be reveled. Or, she'll notice the camera and stop.

What if you're passing up on your dream girl?
And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

But she's gots candy and is willing to share.

That's a rarity in my house.

Then I looked up what a girt bar is- I am really starting from scratch on some of this stuff.


We got lucky and on one of our teardown's- we had many x -9 slides with Date Of Man 2020 come off the aircraft. Those slides are very rare that new and very desireable. I just sold all of them to one of the major major accounts who have been COVID asleep until last month, they want them for their initial MAX's...

Shit is picking up speed, and we are understaffed. :) :)

LH flight attendants are not kind creatures. But very tall.

Also, it was not today that I learned this, but the immigration process in Dubai, even with coronavirus, is 1/100th as tedious as it is any time I step foot back on American soil.

That gave me an actual LOL. It's 100% true!

Of all the sick, twisted, and outright stupid data formats I've ever had to deal with, YAML has to be the absolute worst.

A single space out of place will make the whole document invalid, and the parser will blame a perfectly innocent piece of code several hundred lines down. Editing this mess is fraught with danger, and rapidly turns into a game of whack-a-mole. "Fragile" doesn't come close. Combine this with Ansible, and today has been truly awful. Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

I had a perfectly good shell script, but... reasons. {grumpy}
