Double Triple Feature

TUESDAY TRIPLE TRIVIA

Our Triple Trivia Question from last week (February 26th 2013) entitled "All About 'U'":

During a 180 degree "U" Turn, which part of the aircraft has the widest arc?

ANSWER:

The turning wing (Alex hit the runway spot on!)

------------

I was debating whether or not to do a triple trivia for this week as the term "busy" is an understatement. I decided to do a trivia but it will not be so 777, and I will explain why on Thursday.

HOWEVER tonight I will be reading the aviation thriller "Flight For Control" for the seventh time and being that it's reading number seven, I'd use that excuse to use the novel for this week's "777" trivia question.

Darby is right. It's the wife's job to snoop and Darby was helping Kat break into her husband's sacred flight bag. The code was a combination of a dual type rate for Boeing pilots. Our trivia this week is two questions.

OUR "777 TRIVIA" Flight For Control Trivia Questions

Which aircraft is the dual type rate along with a 757 and what is the combination to unlock Bill's sacred flight bag?

ANSWER NEXT WEEK!

Karlene is exempt from this week's trivia!

  1. Lol.. But this is the one that I knew! Yes... busy is an understatement for all of us. But I do know you have your priorities in focus. And mine is trying to get the sequel out before OSH!

  2. Before OSH would be great and can't wait, but yes please don't rush by all means. I haven't lost all of my patience! Being that you already know the answer, I'll let you give it next week if you wish! LOL

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

FORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

The Gift of Giving

"In realizing the gifts..I was born with, I.. realize.. by sharing them - I'm gifting a part of myself for all humanity to share."  - Eleesha

This happens to be one of my favorite quotes from Eleesha, because we live in a world of give and take.  As much as I feel guilty of taking from others, I try and replace that with giving all my time and talent that I have to offer.   
As prepare to bring Chapter 39 to a close, and prepare to start writing Chapter 40 of my life today at 2:10 p.m. EST, I remember this purpose quoted above, to keep sharing what I have to offer for others even more so - like I have been for so long.  I am very thankful to have so many gifts that have been given to me, such as 
FamilyFriendsTalentsThe ability to have a moral conscience to discern right from wrong.
and last but certainly not, least - what I, and what most if not, all of us take for granted - 
The ability to wake up each morning and taking our first breath of the day.  To realize that we ar…
