Goodbye? I am a fan of saying Goodbye...

no, not really, this came around about 2 years ago when I first came into the aviation chat channel, I had all different nicks, so one day I decided to have this, and it stuck!

Goodbye!

The biggest plane in the world - I've seen it, been inside it, never took pics of it though.  Sad

American Eagle
Chautauqua
Ameriflight
Air MidWest
PenAir
Big Sky
Merlin Express
US Air Force
New Zealand Air Link
Air China

Toadpipe, A character in the book "The Screwtape letters" by C.S. Lewis. I am a big fan of Lewis and his works. I always thought the names for the demons in the book had a queer sort of originality to them, not that I am queer or original or a demon, I just liked the name that is all. Note-queer in the old sense of the word.

Hmm can anyone guess mine?? Very hard I would say.
Ever since I flew into Kai Tak on a United Airlines 747-400 on the IGS approach I fell in love with that aiport. I spent so many hours out at Kai Tak that it almost felt like home. It was just a very magical/amazing site to see a 747-400 come screaming over kowloon city in a sharpe turn with the checkerboard and Lion rock as the back drop! Damn I miss that airport!

Well, how I originally came to Aloha 737-200 was me going down a checklist of new usernames that I COULD use, and scratching them out cause they sounded stupid.

Eventually I came to two names, ALOHA 737-700 and ALOHA-737-200, and well, -200 sounded freindlier, so I picked that one.

Now, the original reason for my name came from my goals. I wanted to become a pilot for Aloha and fly the -200 interisland. That will not happen now as Aloha and their -200s are going away, but I will still fly for a certain Hawaiian airline.

Recently I've had urges to change my username yet again, but I cant, so I'm stuck using an obsolete username for a plane that will be gone soon.  Sad

Oh well, at least it says ALOHA!!!

First, to Aloha 737-200: Don't change your username!! Then I won't be able to scan through and see what posts are generally worth reading!

Anyway---If you can, take my username and break it into 2 words: jetBlue Rules. You will then see that, in my opinion, jetBlue Airways is the world's best airline!

Sorry Twotterwrench, because of a lot of cost accounting research tasked to me by my GM, guess which type of A/C in my fleet was found to generate the most positive revenue?

The METROs HAHAHaHaHa!!!! You just got to Love them!!!

L188: Orin started his company in 1954 with a TriPacer.

His start up with his own scheduled hub & spoke commuter system was with a Metro IIA. I was there!

Metwrench - Your airline operates nothing that is PT-6 powered, so your research is therefore biased and inaccurate. As my father used to say, what is obvious to you is obvious to you... You want rugged and reliable, you can't beat the Twin Otter...yeah, she's slow, but she always comes home. And it doesn't take 187 different computers to keep it flying either.
