  1. Canadian Warplane Heritage had/has one in the collection. Cessna Crane Mk 1. C-FFGF
  2. Applies to ATC too ... we are all human ... on air for me! with U/S headset on constant PTT (and nobody following instructions)... worked it out later with the maligned peelot over a wobbly pop
  3. Feel'n old this evening. Lawn darts, flufs, et al. Add in PanAm, Chq WorldWays.... Austin ... too many to think about. "Bring me my wine"
  4. Nope. Just a redefinition of the term "aisle seat"
  5. Not impressed! A waste of time! and tax dollars. Don't care how "they" categorize me. Got to that part and had to terminate the exercise and send a missive to my MP (brand new Liberal). Any evident useful purpose to the survey?
  6. Just back from Spain. Do not expect foreign exchange service (or any service involving $$'s) in a bank unless you have a local account. Count on the ATM. Best rate (for me) and easiest. It spits out euros. Take as much euro as you are comfortable with in your pocket. Credit cards are not often accepted when away from tourist areas. Enjoy the Food and wine.
  7. Seems to be the status quo. ROU1890 TPA-YYZ, full baby-bus Feb 4th, early ask to check, not many takers. Had already paid via credit card to check one small bag (US $) and got challenged by the "ROUGE HATTED CREW" as I stowed SWMBO's small handbag in the overhead (no other carry on). No challenges for the taped box tied with twine traveller with so many "bags" she was asking for assistance. Time to enforce, It fits in the frame, or check it! And you only get ONE! To add insult to injury it took 1+45 to get my bag back in YYZ. A bag smaller than others "carried on". So guess how that made me feel ...
  8. and never permit cell phone use, don't sing along to your iPod, muzzle chatty pointed elbow row mates, ban "church" meetings and "social time" mid-Atlantic for those booked beyond LHR that use bulkhead row space to congregate in the footroom I paid for, if you requested a special meal be in the seat assigned so that all can have stellar service, the aisle is not a playground, sit down strap in and ... sorry for that but the white 73 don't look bad.
  9. Huh! Speaking from experience or just speculation?
  10. We did in 2008. Don't delay. Buy early and the best seats that you can within your budget (end "zone" by the Royal Box is terrific). Goes rain or shine! Don't take a brolly - take a Mac. Hey, should be able to do it on Rouge this year.
  11. Guaranteed our 2 their 1st undergrad degree without student debt if they helped themselves. That meant no reading week beach vacations or summers finding themselves in Nepal. Post-Grad degrees were on their hook. Lived by it, one went on to an MA and the other an MD. Both gainfully employed outside of aviation, student debt paid and making Dad & Mum smile. A realistic student has debt to manage as a fact of life. Prepare them to succeed, not for failure by always giving. What are they going to do when you are gone?
  12. Up all night trying to do what you used to be up all night doing?
  13. Same here. Mine has called the hospital home since December and with a stroke thrown in for good measure is now waiting for a placement in long term care ... today is a "relatively good" day. Being a big person just SUCKS.
