The beyond stupid drunk flight crew on an America West flight were
sentenced today. The Pilot got 5 years and the other drunk sitting to
his right got 2 1/2years . All through the trial they were 2 arrogant
A holes............... They got off light , in my opinion.

"How do you plead?", the judge asked.

"Not guilty, your honour!", one replied reaking of liqour.

"Yeah!", the other added, "We're not as thrunk as you wink the are!"

Actually, I thought the real rule was:

Eight hours in the UK.

24 in the US of A.

That's what a commercial pilot has told me, anyhow.

Speaking of John Wayne, the DVD of THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY will be released
here on Aug 2. First time it has been available in home video. I watched it
last Sunday evening on the AMC satellite channel (unfortunately, broken up
by commercials).

At the same time, they are releasing the DVD of ISLAND IN THE SKY, another
one of his movies. It was on AMC last Saturday. I had forgotten all about
that one, not too bad a movie and a different type story for Wayne.

Thanks for the tip Paul. It's been many, many years since I last saw it
and I just added it to my Netflix queue.

Oh they're both extremely busy in the add-on software bizz.
We're also missing Handsome, who is busy in another field of aviation.

I'm more worried about Lawn Dart who, to my knowledge, was still struggling
with her new system.

We're missing someone else, but for the life of me I can't remember who!

First off.. it might not be good to post while drinking 12-oz cans of
domestic beer, brewed in St. Louis, MO.. perhaps better than Boeing
jetliner Sim activity.

Last word from Oskar.. working on Swiss shores, streams, lakes, etc.
and sent screen caps of home field near Zurich.

Paul R may be able to help because I can't find it any longer. Army
bottle to throttle is 12 hours I seem to recall. I'm still looking for
it in writing. Nowhere in AR95-1 that I can see.

Yup,

My memory is the same as yours boB. Except somewhat older :-) 12 hours no
alcohol (I have no idea what reg that was in--but we all knew about it) and
no smoking within 50 feet of an aircraft.

Of course, there was always someone you would hear say the rule was really
meant to read no smoking within 12 hours and no drinking within 50 feet of
the aircraft. The comment was most often made in the club (in Vietnam
anyway) after a few beers following a VERY long flying day. :-)
