coastdog Posted September 23, 2017 Report Share Posted September 23, 2017 To the pilot who left me the anonymous note after blowing away my 206 intake plugs today in Shearwater, B.C. I really should have done a better job securing my gear and I apologize for the hazard and any inconvenience. I’m not exactly sure how things went south. My stuff had survived plenty of traffic over the past three days without incident ... but sometimes #### happens. You will be pleased to know that I didn't actually need the 'good luck' in finding my plugs as suggested in your note but located them quickly as they were less than 10 metres away and in plain sight. I will also be forever grateful that you took the time to write your vitriol and place it in my away kit so I would know just how "f#%ing dumb" I was. There has been some question on this from time to time over the course of my career and your input is truly appreciated. Certainly your time was better spent writing your note than picking up the items and removing them from the landing area. Perhaps if you had stuck around I might have bought you a coffee. In 40 years of flying I have only ever met a small handful of pilots that felt they were above making mistakes (rookie or otherwise) and that maintained a zero tolerance attitude towards the rest of us mortals. I would have enjoyed getting to know you a bit and learning your secrets to achieving perfection. I think that regardless I’ll probably make a few more rookie moves before my enlightenment. 4 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
