    You reckon you're going through withdrawal. I'm back at work

    At least my colleagues kindly and effectively covered for me while I was gone. (Does it show in my posts that I gave them links to this thread )

    If you're interested I could post up some of my daughters shots, there's every probability they're better than mine. Otherwise I can just put them up ad-hoc on the POTD thread.

    What plane was it you used to fly btw (assuming that sort of thing is not classified)

    It made great reading DPR thanks for sharing your holiday I really enjoyed being along with you all. It must have been an exhausting trip but it definitely looked like everyone had a great time. A holiday everyone will remember for ever I'm sure.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Post what you feel like posting. Ad-hoc works for me. Since you have a thread, might as well use it.

    If the plane question was addressed to me... I only flew commercial (about 3 million miles all together). Did some soaring when I lived in Hawaii (past lifetime).

    D70fan:
    What type of aircraft, if you don't mind?
    Not trying to be nosy, just love aviation and aircraft. Love to shoot airshows, just don't have any locally very often.

    Pretty much everything in commercial aviation (except Ilyushin and Antonov) over 35 years. Starting with the Convair Electra's (PSA and Eastern Airlines) then in the Military (Navy) the C130, C141, and C5A. Strictly as a MAC passenger.

    Commercial: Boeing 707, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, 777, DC3 (Trans Texas Airways!), DC8 (Braniff), DC9, DC10, MD11, MD80 (and Variants), MD90, Shorts 360, ATR42 & 72, Embraer 190, Airbus 300,310, 320, 340, BAE146, Fokker F100, Bombardier CRJ100/200, SAAB340, Fairchild Metro, and last but not least the Lockheed L1011 TriStar.

    I think that's pretty much it. It's taken me 3 years to go through withdrawal, and I still crave pressurized air. I love to fly.

    When I lived in Silicon Valley we would go to the air shows at Moffett Field, which usually included the Blue Angels. They flew P3 Orion's, and NASA U-2's out of there, with the occasional C5A, and C141 as well. Lockheed has a large facility there as well. Since Moffett closed a few years ago I'm not sure now. Salinas has a pretty nifty fly-in and airshow, usually in Aug/Sept.

    Thanx, D70fan;
    Looks like you had a busy career.
    Have been a passenger in DC3 & Super Costellation(1954), DC9,727,737, and a Turboprop that I don't remember.
    Usually flying out of our local airport (KBGM). My Apartment house is almost on a direct line with Runway 340 about 8 miles out., so I very often see aircraft on final approach.
    Sorry about hijacking this thread.

    Yes, yes it was. Here is a scan of my card... Most of the miles have been used over the years.

    Nice to have permanent Platinum status. Unfortunately no time to use it... yet.

    Wow, thanks for the answer and yes it was addressed to you.

    Here's a shot from my daughter of the marriage saver (GPS) and then here's a few early shots from my daughter to take us up to the end of the Midway (approx day 4).
