Re. Turbine 206 on floats...

I couldn't find the refueling probe...

That rig must cost a fortune even before adding in the cost of having a KC-135 on station...

The box it came in is tasteful but when you open it up it contains something akin to one of those impolite Christmas time fruit logs.

I got to fly in a 787 this week. Amazing plane. Very quiet in cruise but loud when the flaps were extended.

I think I was on the first United 787 flight that left from the scheduled airport on time and landed at the scheduled airport on time.
