Jimmy Buffetts "Floridays"... Spotters Mentioned?

Sun Mar 07, 2004 8:47 pm

Check this out.. here is a verse from "Floridays" by Jimmy Buffett. I wonder if he is talking about A.net people! Big grin

"The dreamers line the state road
Just to watch the runway show
Slouched behind their steering wheels
They just watch the big jets go
Streakin' through the morning haze
Focal point of a distant gaze
Lookin' for better days "


What do ya think? Cool heh?

Let's not forget that this is the album with "No Plane On Sunday" on it. IMHO one of the best aviation songs of all times. (Maybe just because it sounds all too familiar, living in the islands...)  Smokin cool

That is one of those songs you could listen to over and over and never tire of  Smile
