Apparently it’s time to rejoice that winter is finally over. There’s a damned *chinook* blowing this morning. It’s partly clear and the sun isn’t up yet and it’s 48 degrees and there’s a warm southerly wind blowing. *buh*
In other news, some observations I forgot to make about Era Aviation. First, the Dash-8 that we flew in down to Kenai had a small sign which read, “Close and latch door during taxi, take-off, turbulence and landing.”
Does this not suggest that if the weather’s fine, one can open the door for a pleasant breeze during the flight?
Also, they hand out cookies during those flights. On the cookies (well, on the wrappers) were stickers which read, “Book your flight online at EraAviation.com and get a free in-flight cookie!”
And I thought, “Wow, this whole flight booked online?”
Then I read the smaller print, which said (You’d get one anyway, but we thought we’d mention it.)
I thought that was pretty funny. :)
On the flight back home, which was fairly turbulent, the landing was *so smooth* we weren’t even sure we’d touched down. I was obliged to compliment the pilot. Yes yes.
