  1. I installed the app onto my phone and find it easy to navigate around and it helps to manage your notifications.
  2. Obviously a man with good shirt taste and just like me wants to be seen in a crowd. In my case the bar or nightclub.
  3. Big big fan of ZZ Top and always puts a smile on my face, when i listen to them. ZZ Top "Gimme All Your Lovin"
  4. During taxi, the crew of a US Air departure flight to Ft. Lauderdale, made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727. The irate ground controller (a female) lashed out at the US Air crew screaming, “US Air 2771, where are you going? I told you to turn right on “Charlie” taxiway; you turned right on “Delta”. Stop right there. I know it’s difficult to tell the difference between C’s and D’s but get it right.” Continuing her lashing of the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically, “God, you’ve screwed everything up; it’ll take forever to sort this out. You stay right there and don’t move until I tell you to. You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about a half hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you. You got that, US Air 2771??” The humbled crew responded: “Yes Ma’am”. Naturally, the “ground control” frequency went terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air Flight 2771. No one wanted to engage the irate ground controller in her current state. Tension in every cockpit was running high. Shortly after the controller finished her admonishment of the U.S. Air crew, an unknown male pilot broke the silence and asked, “Wasn’t I married to you once?”
  5. Awesome Andrew and that is only around 40 minutes away from where i live and will make a point of searching it out for a pic.
  6. Fantastic Tjampman and never noticed the registration and absolutely brill.
  7. Free souvenir “Your seat cushions can be used for flotation, and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.”
  8. Pfizer in the arm and a Jagermeister in the mouth (perfect solution)
  9. Sorry Alice and I will focus on the positives regarding aviation from now on.
  10. The best place for a cup of coffee is on board a A330 and you will find “331 Station Coffee War” cafe in Sattahip and it is 30km from Pattaya. The Airbus A330 has been converted into a coffee cafe. The current owners paid 10 million Thai Baht. A cup of coffee is great value and only costs 60 Baht ($2.00). In order to ensure the health and safety of customers during Covid-19, the cafe reportedly conducts temperature checks, requires the wearing of masks, and regularly disinfects surfaces. Only 60 customers are permitted “on board” at any one time, for a maximum of 40 minutes. The A330 was withdrawn from use in March of 2015 and then stored at U-Tapao Airport. The Airbus A330-300 once flew with Thai Airways, registered as HS-TEA.
  11. Very welcome King Cotton and will dig up some more for you and Andrew Reeve
  12. Cheers King Cotton and appreciate the candid truth Will give "teething" a blast later on today.
  13. Pilots Vs Maintenance Engineers After every flight, pilots fill out a form, called a “gripe sheet” which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers. P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement. S: Almost replaced left inside main tire. P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough. S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft. P: Something loose in cockpit. S: Something tightened in cockpit. P: Dead bugs on windshield. S: Live bugs on back-order. P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent. S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground. P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear. S: Evidence removed. P: #2 Propeller seeping prop fluid S: #2 Propeller seepage normal – #1 #3 and #4 propellers lack normal seepage P: DME volume unbelievably loud. S: DME volume set to more believable level. P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick. S: That’s what they’re for P: IFF inoperative. S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode. P: Suspected crack in windshield. S: Suspect you’re right. P: Number 3 engine missing. S: Engine found on right wing after brief search. P: Aircraft handles funny. S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious. P: Target radar hums. S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics P: Mouse in cockpit. S: Cat installed. And the best one for last. P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer. S: Took hammer away from midget.
  14. Hey King Cotton, the main contractors are confident even if they start in 2022 they will have phrase 1 completed and operational for 2025. On reflection you probably will be right as it will prove to be wishful thinking on my part. I have not lived in Thailand for that long and obviously too trusting to proposals and plans. Trophies in the Attic now playing on the tablet with the volume turned up. flat mates not impressed with that sound.
  15. Top of the shots list Cement mixer shot, it is made with Baileys Irish Cream and lime juice When mixed in the mouth, the acid in the lime juice will curdle the cream liqueur causing it to rapidly gain viscosity and stick to the drinkers' teeth, like cement. Its a fun drink!!!!
