Nothing extraordinary, but as part of my 'make friendly' campaign, I thought I needed to do a little extra!


"Yummy" crew meal. Whoodathunk you can make a chicken finger, ham and swiss sandwich?



Some scribbled notes about the route of flight so I can make a PA without having to sound like a dummy! Also in the bottom left corner, updated Colts vs Chiefs scores for the PA from ATC:



Fuel quantity indicator and FMS route data page:



ACARS message from flight control about the Packers/Eagles game from the first quarter. We had a planeload full of people breathlessly desperate for constant updates on the game (kind of blurry, sorry!)



Ahh, first HOT liquid all day. No thanks to the Wayfarer hotel in Manchester, NH. Grr... (Yup, that's a venti 'traditional' with non-fat cream and unstirred, just the way Doug likes it! So I'm a weirdo)



Sunset over Missouri:

I'll be Kristie was pretty happy with the score in the ACARS. Too bad it didn't finish that way.

So sue me. I wanted Brett Favre to have one last run.

Kinda bites, but you can't blame a guy for trying!

Not a bad try, actually, Doug.

I'm almost embarrassed to ask ... that the -88 or the -90?

This popped up on the cockpit printer after the game was over. Methinks someone in flight control is a football fan!

Actually, the only way you could tell if it was an -88 or a -90 would be the absence of the 'ort' (over-rated thrust) gate in front of the throttles, the 'N2' indicator, and the fuel control. We have a 757/767-type fuel switch in the -90 and the -88 has some strange "Douglas-esque" contraption.

Time for my dumb question of the month. I've been out of the loop for awhile, what's the "make friendly" campaign? Did I miss something interesting? Oh, do tell!

I think I got a little overworked and preachy in the now infamous (and closed) "Ameriflight" post-a-rama...

Golly, I've had it wrong all this time. I've always called it a "Taylor-esque" contraption....

"Douglas" as in "McDonnell-Douglas".

Like they always said, "Boeing builds jets, Douglas builds character!"

If you don't mind telling, could you share us a brief idea of your schedule over the last week, culminating with these pics and that gourmet meal?

Oh, and do crew members get a "crew meal" on board each flight?

Some great pics, this is the kinda stuff that I like to see. For some reason I thought that the crew ate the same stuff as the passengers.
