I know a lot of pilots don't make big bucks. But there are a lot of posters on airliners.net that claim they work for DL, AA, UA, etc, and just by the numbers these guys should be making $125000++++.... What do you guys spend all that money on? Cars, houses, boats, ?? I know a senior UA pilot who's hobby is to goto Russia and buy old Migs and fix them up. What do you pilots do?

$125,000... wow.. they should just retire..
back to reality. I don't know where you live, but $125,000 salary in the DC area will barely be enough to make the mortgage on a nice home in the suburbs and a couple Toyota's... and maybe have enough $$ left over for the kids tuition.
It's not bad $$, but it's not enough to have a fleet of Porsche's in the driveway.
