    Goose did accommodate seven large aircraft. Not nearly as many as Gander or Halifax. And try a Snicker’s bar.

    An Old Pilot's Reflections Pilots are people who drive airplanes for other people who can't fly. Passengers are people who say they fly, but really just ride. Fighter Pilots are steely eyed, weapons systems managers who kill bad people and break things. However, they can also be very charming and personable. The average fighter pilot, despite sometimes having a swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. (However, these feelings don't involve anyone else.) Flying is a hard way to earn an easy living. Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the airplane; the pessimist invents the parachute. Death is just nature's way of telling you to watch your airspeed. As a pilot only two bad things can happen to you (and one of them will): a. One day you will walk out to the aircraft, knowing it is your last flight. b. One day you will walk out to the aircraft, not knowing it is your last flight. There are rules and there are laws: The rules are made by men who think that they know how to fly your airplane better than you. The laws (of physics) were ordained by God. You can and sometimes should suspend the rules, but you can never suspend the laws. About Rules: a. The rules are a good place to hide if you don't have a better idea and the talent to execute it. b. If you deviate from a rule, it must be a flawless performance (e.g., if you fly under a bridge, don't hit the bridge.) Before each flight, make sure that your bladder is empty and your fuel tanks are full. He who demands everything that his aircraft can give him is a pilot; he who demands one iota more is a fool. There are certain aircraft sounds that can only be heard at night and over the ocean. Most of them are scary. The aircraft limits are only there in case there is another flight by that particular aircraft. If subsequent flights do not appear likely, there are no limits. In the Alaskan bush I'd rather have a two-hour bladder and three hours of gas than vice versa. An old pilot is one who can remember when flying was dangerous and sex was safe. Airlines have really changed; now a flight attendant can get a pilot pregnant. I've flown in both pilot seats. Can someone tell me why the other seat is always occupied by an idiot? And my favorite; You have to make up your mind about growing up and becoming a pilot, because you can't do both.

    A little bit of "reality" for Toronto..... This is what being a sanctuary city is all about. This is what a sanctuary city does. This is what a sanctuary city is. You wanted to be a sanctuary city and you are. There was no other likely outcome and if you look back on it, these folks were invited. That invitation was intended as a swat at DJT policies.... did you think no one would take you up on it or was your offer insincere from the start? All of this is self inflicted.... and no, I don't feel obliged to help. Raise taxes in Toronto and get er done. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/levy-city-overwhelmed-by-refugee-claimants

    As someone who lived in Alberta during Ralph's time, it was good for us, it was good for our economy. Something the present and the past few Governments will never have on their records.

    Years ago the only safe way to travel was to have a Maple Leaf on your clothing. Since Trudeau it would be a target.
