    My computer guru had a client that had the software & rudder pedals in his office & would fly the most realistic fake plane you could imagine. He had 1 program that was set up for a 737 stretch & you would think he was in a flight simulator at one of the airlines. He had some serious bucks in that set up. He had a friend who was an actual pilot that had flown stretch 737's & he would come over on days off & help him tweak the software & hardware he had set up. Between him & the pilot they bought or made a lot of the controls. Jaw dropping is an understatement when you walked in his office. The 50 inch monitors on the wall made you feel you were on the flight deck rolling down the runway for take off. Was only there a dozen times over the years & it was still not enough. von.

    Dave's Hat has it's own DC3, Hat pilots are on a work release program from a Cedar Rapids prison.

    Pilots on a work release program? Priceless. Make sure there are no bags full of a white powder substance on board. von.

    I heard Dave and Wong discussing, making you a sky marshall on the plane.

    Seeing how that is considered hazardorus duty, do I get a pay increase to Combat pay? And as a Air Marshall do I have final say on seat assignments? And what kind of bullets am I allowed to use? Decompression @ Angels 30 can result in one harry ride to the recovery sight. von.

    Only replacement for a DC-3 is another DC-3. The sun hasn't risen on this planet in about 75 years without a DC-3 flying somewhere.

    Wong needs to keep his knees tightly together while on the forklift in cold conditions. That will keep the frost off the "pumpkins".

    You don't get to bitch and moan, but his avatar is him complaining about only being paid at 85%.

    An old high school friend is an engineer for Jervis Webb and they make these automated forklifts. I saw them in operation as late as 10 years ago. They are already in use at large Coke, Pepsi, and Beer warehouses.
