With that said I love aircraft and hit the museums whenever possible. Which reminds me - has anyone ever noticed the Mexicana 727 that is in a park on the south of Monterrey not too amazingly far from where this poor gal's Lear went down? One has to wonder how they dragged this thing through the streets because it sure didn't land in the driveway.

I'll attest to that. Being an acrophobic pilot, that is. Also means that no rider in the group is getting as much thrill-factor in the mountains than I am. Fear is one of the greatest sources of energy known to man. You just gotta learn to manage it.
