Short Final for 8 January 2007

Recommended Posts

From Avweb.com's twice weekly report on aviationShort FinalReturning to Princeton, New Jersey in a Seminole, I was proudly clipping along at 140 knots and can only assume that my deep voice and professional-sounding tone led to us appearing to be more than we were:Seminole Two Two Eight: "New York approach, Seminole Two Two Eight, 5,000."Approach: "Seminole Two Two Eight, Morristown altimeter 30.08. Proceed direct Solberg, maintain 5,000. Were you given any speed restrictions? If so, you can resume normal speed."Seminole Two Two Eight: "Direct Solberg, 5,000, Two Two Eight. And we're a Seminole. This is normal speed." Doc Bryant

And now...From the other sidea passenger's view of the whole mess!I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So, I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"Best regards.Luis

Now I remember why I like flying myself and the "Enterprise" on business trips -- my luggage is all "carry on" in the cabin.Today will be the first time I have been on an airliner since February 2006. I am again heading to California for a week. The air fare from Nashville to San Jose was only $247 round trip. The AVGAS for my airplane to make that trip would be over $550. Then of course, there is the weather to consider. With that mess in Oklahoma and Texas, it is a good day to fly from Nashville to Salt Lake City for my connection to San Jose.Jerry K.
