Having participated in all the previous T-New trials, I'm of the opinion this one didn't go as smooth as the others. I suspect the GTAA feel the same way, too. Perhaps the pressure is on to meet deadlines and the staff are working extremely hard to accomplish their goals... resulting in the less than perfect simulation. I won't fault anyone for this, though. These things are unavoidable. Hey.... At least we got to ride the shuttle! Although, I'm sure, after (inadvertently) riding the shuttle for the third time, some of you grew weary of the experience. (A380; You still with us, man? )
It was good to meet a few more of you, today. Most impressive to meet a three year old who knows as much about airplanes (if not more) than some people I know! Pretty good turn out today, eh Captain and GMonney?! Also, I would like to find out what company handles the cleaning contract ;-]
Anyway, I have no problems participating in future trials. The aim is to work-out (minimize) any bugs prior to launch. Glitches are unavoidable, but, having less problems to deal with on opening day will make for fewer cases of 'ground rage".
Thanks for the pen and aerial photo!
