2 of their planes were special leased to AQ for the summer, and I saw them at HNL a bunch.

Yes that is true though Hooters is not! Pace was Hooters, Hooters was not Pace.

Yep. Interesting that the Hooters guy still owns it. Hooters Air was really just a way for him to get people to patronize the investments he has in Myrtle Beach.

Bob Brooks died several months ago. Maybe B757capt will be able to provide more information on the shutdown.

I like Brookes' honesty in this article:
"I've got a fair amount of money, but I don't have enough to fix this animal"

I think he was smart to get out while the getting was good, whereas others would run a business into the ground trying to keep it alive.

Since "gels" are no longer allowed onboard the aircraft the "Hooters" girls couldn't board with all the Silicone Gel in their Breasts.

This is also a problem on most LAX flights as well with all carriers.

Damn every topic seems to have be discussed more than once. THis is more annoying in every thread than the multi threads.



The only valid opinions are those based in facts
