"You can't do anything about the wind.
You can't do anything about the weather.
But you can adjust the attitude of your plane."
I can't take credit for the photo... and not sure who sent it to me, but this shows the power of vortices.
Last week I was on a flight home, 80 miles out of Seattle, and a rumble began like moderate turbulence. And then our 737 rolled about 40-45 degrees left, then back to the right about 20, and then left about 10, before the wings leveled. A plane had flown overheard and tried to flip us.
Can pilots be scared on a plane?
Yes, when they are passengers and have no control.
I arrived home from Hawaii around midnight last night. Photos from the trip were non-existent because my camera wouldn't talk to my computer. That shall be solved later in the week. This morning, I'm on my way to Oklahoma City for some NextGen testing.
How do I manage this busy and full life? One day at a time, and with a great Attitude. We have the control of our Attitude in a plane and on the ground.
When it's bad... Fix it!
What do you do to adjust your Attitude?
Enjoy the Journey!
