Earlier today, a Boeing 717 pilot had an identity crisis while in flight. The First Officer, challenged with complete control of the jet, could not manage to reaffirm the captain's identity at the same time, and resorted to simply writing, "Captain" on a sheet of paper and placing it in front of the captain.

"Thankfully," the F/O said, "he remembered that much and helped me fly her in safely."

Heh.

I didn't know the pic went with the post.

I thought it was just a general thing.

Sophie, were you referring to me, the pilot, or the guys who couldn't figure out that this story was in jest?

Heh.

If you posted something like "look below" I would have caught it.

However, I don't go loading 200kb pictures all the time when it just looks like a cockpit shot.

Oh well.

Sorry, I have DSL so it downloads in a fraction of a second. I guess I'll have to go back to thinking in Dialup terms!

Heh, yeah.

Well, maybe not life, will get cablemodem soon. It really sucks. I was waiting for like 6 years for one, and when they finally got in my town (they had been in towns surrounding my town for a LONG time), I went away to college. I had "real" internet there though. Now I am back home so I should get real internet.

I assume the papers are just like, notes, or a stack of memos or something for the captain, and clipping them there made the most sense at the time.

Makes him look kind of dumb now though.  Smile
