We Have Such Awesome Jobs.

Great harvest moon tonight when I landed! Makes it all worthwhile.

I've seen it before with smoke in the air as well.. makes the big orange ball. Engineer plants a cold one in your hand and tells you to go home as it's his ship now.

See you in the morning for leak checks and run ups.

Can't beat it!

I don't suppose that qualilfies as a Freudian slip, Steve, but I'm sure it must reflect ambivalence about our .craft.' :up:

 

My first thought when I read the original thread title was "Hm, Freudian slip or clever subversive jibe?" :lol:

 

But yes - awesome job. I've only a little better than 200 hours so far, but one of my most memorable flights was flying my parents on the 5-minute jaunt at the end of the duty day between our company's sightseeing spot back to the farmhouse that us pilots lived in. Clear skies, dead calm air, sun about to set in the west. My mom - who was never a good flyer on airliners - sitting in the front left seat exclaiming "Oh, this is wonderful! I see why you like it so much!!" and my dad in the back peppering me with helicopter questions. The photo in my profile was taken by my mom as I was winding down from that very flight.

 

Plus, my folks left us with cookies and a dozen cold beer. :up:

 

Pretty awesome indeed!
