Frontier Tail 809 Was At SFO

Wed May 09, 2007 8:03 am

Well this morning when I was looking at the flight loads I noticed that 809 was the first flight of the day. Since I keep my Canon550 with me everyday I went to the gate to get a picture of it.

I wonder what the name will be for this tail.

Its a Porcupine.

Maybe the name should be PORKY, but probably not since its a pig name.

Nice shot. I got a photo of it Sunday at SAN while I was waiting for ExpressJet to move from Jimsair over to the Commuter Terminal.

It looks a lot like my first wife. And by the end of my marriage, she was just as prickly. I'll have to congratulate her on her modelling gig.

That's a nice little picture. I think it looks cute with the flower and all...

Sonic is a hedgehog. You kids have no idea about the video games you missed...

Funny that you should get this shot today (of all days) in SFO! I was part of the crew that flew it back to DEN this morning as flight 650. The aircraft then went on to MCI. Good photo  Smile
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

I'd call it 'Be nice to the F/As when flying on this aircraft or else..."

Hedgehogs have a much more pointed nose.

This appears to be the animal adorning ship #809.

How about "Paula The Porcupine"? Who says that's a male?

I vote for "Spike" if it's a boy and "Princess" if it's a girl.  bouncy

How do you tell if a porcupine is a boy or girl - how do you get close enough?  Smile

But I think it is a great pic. The flower is a very simple way to make a porucpine look "cute".

You could follow it (at a safe distance) to the little porcupine's room and see which one it goes into.  hyper

Yes, you could.

And since we're into porcupine jokes, I guess it is time for the old one - how do porcupines make love?

I'm sure you know.  Smile

Geez Mariner... I know that the A.net crowd can be tough, but this is the first time I have ever been accused of being a porcupine voyeur!  laughing  Too bad I already have you on my respected list or I'd add you!

Many FA's have been calling it "Spike," although the company has yet to field employees for name suggestions. I kind of like "Spike" myself.
