Anchorage

It would be a nice place, if I was here on vacation….
 
Sitting here 2:33 in the morning, nothing to do, no 7-11 to go shop at… Just waiting… Waiting for the hotel ppl to slip the confirmation of checkout and pick-up time for my flight in a few hours… Good thing I love watching TV, comedy central, love it~
 
Anchorage would be much better, if I was here on vacation…

What the…

 The four year curse… was broken… sort of…
 
Aug 20th, I flew from Anchorage back to Taipei, ending my five-day ANC-NYC trip. As soon as we blocked in, and the maintainance told us about what happened in Naha…
 
After I got home, logged on to MSN, but of course, people start to msg me to ask me what happened… people started to call too… Dude… Different fleet!!  I like to clairify that, pilots are not like your regular car drivers, we don’t just hop into any plane and be able to fly the thing around the world. You need training for each different aircraft. Then you get the rating for it, and you have to renew it every once in a while. It’s not like you drive a Honda Accord, but you can hop into a BMW 330i and drive it off anytime you want.
 
Anyway, what happened in Naha will be revealed by the Japanese investigation team, we could speculate, but nothing can be confirmed till the reports come out.  What the media in Taiwan is doing, is simply speculating without proof, and report it to the people. Sadly, most people believe whatever is on the news…  And the interviews with the passengers…
 
Oh, and of course, all of the sudden, everyone and their mother became an expert in aviation safety, and everyone knows about the procedures on evacuation… That just pisses me off… We spent two years to finish all of our training, and those experts on TV… they probably just watched Air Crash Investigations on Discovery…
 
Then there’re the passengers… I have to admit, 10,000yen is not alot, but for toiletries and underware and stuff, should be enough bah… I would be just happy that I’m still alive! And I know they suffered a lot, emotionally, so of course they would complain and stuff… shit, I just lost my train of thoughts… alright, more on this later…
 
That’s enough for today… I am going back to watch the re-runs on TV… by my lonely self… in NYC… hehehe

Finally

Aug 4th, I finished my training.
 
It all started on Aug 28th, 2005.  In the little town of Adelaide. Me and my other 14 course mates of CAL 15, steped on the "Land of Gazillion Flies".
 
Now, almost 2 years had gone by, I finally finished. Finally…  Training FO no more, just FO (actually, FI, I stand for initial, which is the little evil plan to pay us less…).
 
Now, a new chapter begins. 

Lucky Weekend
