Initials + hockey/football number.

Given that I signed up in 2001, I probably could've gotten JCS, Josh, or some permutation of the two.

This plane just sticks out to me for some reason. My first 763 trip and my first trip out past the rockies. Not really sure why. It was born when I was 5

I was born in 1983 in the Steel City, need I say more?

Interesting how some mentioned the first time they either flew period or flew in a particular class on board a particular airline or aircraft. My first time in J was on 10-15-10, and it was on board AA flight 970 en route from PHL to MIA for a connection to AUA for my honeymoon. It was my first time on AA, too.

Very wonderful flight for more reasons than one.

Mine is a combo of the airline callsign and flight number - Bluebird being the callsign for what was Pacific Blue (now folded into Virgin Australia) and flight number 191 (BNE-POM). This route (BNE-POM and vv) is currently my tied most flown international route (along with BNE-AKL on NZ136) with twice each. The main reasoning behind the username is that its one of my most flown international routes, my favourite route that I've flown (due to the approach), having fallen in love with Port Moresby, and that I've got plenty of friends who live there (and the Papua New Guineans are some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet), and it feels like I'm going home on that particular flight.

I used to collect 164 die cast airplanes and the manufacturer was named Dragon Wings. I thought about changing it to Saturn since I love astronomy.

I'm a motorsports fan and I really like Graham Hill. He's the only one to have won Le Mans, Indianapolis and Monaco (a.k.a. "the Triple Crown"). It started to be my username on some other forums. When I registered to a.net, I thought about getting an airplane-related username, but after thoughts and consideration, I decided to keep my usual.

Middle East Airlines (ME) was the first airline of whom I was an enthusiast, and the second one was United Arab Airlines. In those times the largest airlines of the Arab World. Kingdom of Libya Airlines, Tunis Air, Air Algérie and Royal Air Maroc were still rather small companies and of no relevance, And LIA Lebanese Internatioanal Airlines was a rather small competitor of MEA.. And so, I practically started my interest in civil aviation as a ME aviation fan
