Yep. Shot it coming into Denver today around 12:30pm.



I keep joking with my wife that I'm going to dump my Premier Exec status on United and fly exclusively on Hooters Air for business.  Smile

B757capt,

Are you actually a captain for Hooters?

No no no I am a pilot but not for my company. Lets say I work in ops and we can leave it at that.

We will be in to LAS:

RETURN

LAS-RFD 10-Feb-05 21:15 02:45 PACE 9506

(EDITED- P.S. I love the photos guys, if you have any others please email me and I would love to hang them in ops.)

I was at the inaugural in Denver yesterday. I think the plane left with more crew than passengers, and I don't see that changing anytime soon but I've been wrong before.

Thanks 757capt,

Tell the Captain to make a stop at IFP for me!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Inaugural flights always have more crew/airline personal, airport personal, ect.... on board. Loads are very promissing.

Bullhead-IFP yea I can tell her to swing on over there, I doubt she'll listen though.

"Loads are very promissing."

Between DEN and RFD? I highly doubt it. We give them 90 days.

Thanks 757capt!

That's ok I will be in Vegas the 22nd and then early March. Keep me posted I want to spot that owl in Vegas!

I would suggest Hooters fly into IFP but the crowd is much older than Hooter's fan base. Doubt those old timers from the midwest would like seeing those Daisy Dukes!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Odd. Is it me, or does Hooters Air fly into turbulent areas? Denver is famous for turbulence. Vegas in the summer is a bumpy ride. Ohhhhhh. I get it.... Hooters girls walking down the aisle during bumpy conditions..... What a great publicity campaign!
