UAL747

My first flight on a 747 (a long dream of mine) was on a UA 747-400 going from the US to HKG. But I just realized that I opened my membership 8 months in advance of that date. So I guess I just liked UA and the 747.

Alpha Floor is a mode of the protection envelope of the Airbus aircrafts.
According to my PSS A330/340 systems manuals: To aid recovering from low speed / high angle of attack conditions, Alpha Floor autothrust mode is provided. Alpha floor automatically activates below a predetermined airspeed, if above 100 feet radio altitude, and commands TOGA thrust.

Why did I choose this username is complete mistery... maybe because it starts with the two first letters of my first name...

Just as it says.

I spent four years at Lajes Field, Azores. I visited all nine islands, climbed Pico, boated and flew all around the islands many times, hiked miles and miles all around, and in general just had the time of my life being there! I totally loved it, and I still remmeber it as one of the best times of my life.

Slam! Click! describes a crewmember who disappears into his or her hotel room on the layovers and is not seen again until check-in.

It does not describe me. I always wandered the city alone or with other crew. I was up for just about anything.

Well, my wife just told me that it does describe me and she intends to have it carved on my tombstone.

Perhaps one day it will come true. As someone who is Zone 1 almost every week I do have to tell you aren't exactly missing a whole lot up there. It's not like we have naked chicks and filet mignon up there behind that semi-transparent curtain.  Wink
