I would like to thank Brian Losisto (Air Canada's photographer) for always allowing me to post his pictures. (The above thrust lever pic is his). Then there is Kelly Paterson from Calgary and plane spotter "Erik" from Germany. Of course, I have lots myself. On that note, if you feel a photo(s) may be in appropriate or the content I post a bit dubious by all means send me an email. I will ratify it! That's all I ask.

Ironically, there is a slight reduction on this airplane.
Finally, after being stuck in the mud with status quo equipment bids, the 2010-3 equipment bid came out today with somewhat of an optimistic outlook. It may not seem like huge numbers but it's a positive trend. Unfortunately for me, there are no vacancies on the B777, A330, or B767 but there are 17 slots for A320 captains in Toronto. So Captain Doug will continue to drool over the B767 Captain position a little longer. For those out there ready with the qualifications, dust off those resumes!
Yesterday, I was asked to teach meteorology to the new hire course. I will be attending a meeting on Friday to see what it's all about.
