As we all know, the couple days right after 9/11 happened, nothing was happening at the nations airports. My question for you fellow airport workers is... is there anything you did/wish you had done at your airport that you may never get the chance to do again?
One thing I did was park the company truck in the middle of our biggest runway during what would have been the busiest time of the day and had lunch. I just sat there on the runway centerline for around fifteen minutes and just soaked in the reality of what was going on. The silence was deafening. I heard the highway two miles away, never did before.
The thing that I wish I had done was bring in my golf clubs. I would have taken out the driver, and see if I could have put a golf ball down our 11,000' runway. I could have bragged that I once made a 3,500 yd drive!!
What did you do/wish you had done?
