Can You Help Me Out Here?

Thu Dec 27, 2007 2:10 pm

I was looking at this fantastic photo earlier and I just need some confirmation. Is the guy (Captain?) looking at the camera and saluting? .

Looking at the camera - definitely.

Saluting - I don't know. Could also be a thumbs-up gesture. Then again, what is seen left to his head (from the photographer's point of view) looks too large to be his hand alone. It almost looks as if he is waving a beer bottle towards the photographer...  Wink

I just love the idea of the beer bottle. Imagine flying with Cheers Airlines.

I'd like to think he is! Big grin

What a great little plane. I had a couple of rides on Cirrus Air's baby 8s - a super little machine!
