An elderly doctor and a Presbyterian minister on the plane

An elderly doctor and a Presbyterian minister were seated next to each other on the plane. The plane was delayed at the start due to some technical problems. Just after taking off, the pilot offered his apologies to the passengers and announced that a round of free drinks would be served.
When the charming air-hostess came round with the trolley, the doctor ordered a gin and tonic for himself.
The hostess then asked the minister whether he wanted anything.
He replied, “Oh no, thank you. I would rather commit adultery than drink alcohol.”
The elderly doctor promptly handed back his gin and tonic to the air-hostess and said:
“Madam, I did not know there was a choice.”

I began my ATC career at the Air Force academy! At that time we would run 250,000+ take-offs and landings a year. Pretty busy considering that there wasn't much flying during the summer or any IFR flying. 200 operations an hour was very common. Glad to see that they're updating into some new aircraft. I sure see a shitload of SR-20's and 22's these days. Do those have the Garmin G-1000 set-up?

They still fly quite a bit, they ordered 25 of the T-53a (SR20) to replace the current 20 DA40s they contract from where I work. The DA40 has a normal G1000 cockpit where the SR20 runs a slight variation called the Cirrus Perspective, the majoriy of the controls are in the center pedistal.

In response to this post: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=1669

Yes, they're real. I took them myself (you should be able to check the image EXIF data - I don't believe I stripped it) and have the original image files. No Photoshop magic (perhap some adjustments of exposure and sharpness). My Photoshop skills aren't at the level where I could make an image like that!

I can still remember the "Dukes of Hazzard" episode when Bo flew a glider. It had no comm, but it did have a CB radio
