A new record for a sinking thread. A sorry attempt at bilge freshening. Somebody tell Reynard. I'll stop back in a month or so.

I thought it was interesting.

Friendly correspondence can't hold a candle to US politics and US natural disasters, Bob. It looks like threads about dogs might last an hour or two, though, until the west coast wakes up and has a cuppa bitter covfefe...

Sorry for the slow response. Yes it really is happening. People upgrading in less than a year. Never thought I'd see it happen. 3 of my recent copilots are scheduled for captains school.
As for me I can't wait to get off the Maddog. I've been on it for 20 years, 10 as Copilot, and now 10 as captain. It's a solid old jet, but it's also a square peg in a round hole. Without GPS and some other new electronics it's hamstrung. I've also had several recent trips disrupted by mechanical issues. Nothing real serious, but like an old car there comes a time when it just isn't worth keeping it around.
If it wasn't for building a new house I'd be in Airbus school right now. I'm looking forward to a bigger, quieter office and a lot lower workload.
