Soul Searching

OK. I'm late on the post by eight hours and 22 minutes--actually quite a bit longer considering I don't have a properly prepared post. But here I am--dedicated--in the wee hours of the morning before my real job. Speaking of . . . I am happy to report that I have been flying my "favorite totally-impractical airplane." And thus is why my entry will be short. Many years have passed since flying the Neptune P2V and it has been a quick, unpredicted reunion. My mind has totally been consumed with airspeeds, systems, procedures, and routines for a heavy air tanker, many details not utilized during my days as a SEAT driver. Regardless, life is good. Rest assured that many of us are standing by in CA in the event that these fires--or others--kick off again. Off to work. Pictures to follow, I promise.

When do you get to sit left seat in the Neptune?

It's kind of a bone-of-contention among co-pilots. In recent years, you only got to sit left seat when the captains start to retire or—-heaven for bid--die . . . they never retire and rarely keel over. A bit worse than the airline world - yes?
