October Count Down!

1! 2! 3!

I'm off to Amsterdam in a couple hours. Did you know that there is a 1, 2, 3 gouge out of Amsterdam? Yep! The guys say:

1000 feet autopilot on.
2000 feet switch to ATC automatically.
3000 feet altimeters to Standard.

Personally... I like to fly the plane so my 1000 feet is ... focus on flying!

4 days left in October and so much is happening.

For the entire month everyone has been seeing pink around Delta Airlines.

We have "4" days left to support Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Click Delta Pink Plane Video  and watch an incredible flight. I've been wearing a pink tie, buying pink lemonade and raffle tickets all month.

Now you have 4 days remaining ... to support a great cause!

Detroit Terminal: Celebration!

More counting:

4 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes... and counting and I will no longer be based in Detroit! It took me 22 years, 8 airlines, and 7 different planes... and I finally made it home. 

4 days and counting... Halloween is here and I need photos of pumpkins for my blog! Email them to me. And costumes welcome too!

3 days...and the winner for Mark Ye's B747 Video will be drawn. To enter... sign up to follow the blog and leave a comment HERE 

Enjoy the Journey~
