Listen “In”

While on the last leg of my business trip, I had the pleasure of sitting next to a flight attendant. She was doing the famous “deadhead” of flight attendant lore.

My flight was on AirTran, a first for me. It was a fantastic flight, and was made even better when she told me that AirTran has a reputation for hiring Air Force pilots for their commercial flights. As she expounded on this, I had a thought that caused me to drift away from the conversation. It was not, “Okay…Air Force. He’s had rigorous training and could probably handle any emergency in the air.”

No. I thought, “If we had a flame out in one engine, could he barrel roll this bitch leaving a sick smoke trail to put out the fire and rip off a few missiles in the process?”

Being a boy rules. Never let the boy inside you stop.
