Giulia said...

LOL!!!

What a fun day we had! There was a raging blizzard inside and we were totally clueless about it...until we stepped outside!

Jules, you love driving in snow, right? EEK!

We had the best time chatting with retired pilots who volunteered in the museum...we don't think they were expecting so many questions to come from 2 crazy ladies. :)

We pushed kids outta the way to play in the planes...it was totally cool. *kidding*

Through it all I gave Julie spelling lessons, grammar lessons, lessons in Canadian history...and all she did was give me a headache and she just got me to break some rules! Ha ha ha... (you know I love you, Jules!)

We truly thought of all of our aviation friends as we went through the exhibits. But wait, there are more pics...............

*and oh my!!! I am typing out of control "dots" like her!!! What has she done to me?!?*

xo

getjets said...

Esspecially loved talking to the museum volunteer's there....

the retired
A-320 pilot....who had been to Louisiana in the past.......
and for just a few minutes, I was able to tell him a few things he Didn't know.......

NO......... not about Aviation....but about Cajun Food....Ha Ha..

Yes, we broke a few ittie bittie rules.......and we got some great pictures.........at least those pics aren't up in the post office or 10 most wanted.........;))))

Foggy said...

Yes, that is a "Harrier" - US Marine Corp AV-8A. Built by Hawker Siddley Aviation at Kingston in Surrey, UK. Equivalent to the RAF GR1 version. They were test-flown in the UK - Dunsfold? - before being shipped to the US for installation of US avionics and "other" bits, including the Ejection Seats; originally M-B Type 9, the US Harriers were fitted with "Stencal" seats.

~G~, it was snowing inside as well? LOL...

Giulia said...

LOL! I didn't even notice that!

Oh Foggy...you ribbin' the teacher? Now you're on my bad side again.

Then.......
JFK Controller says.......
"OK........make a turn
"OVER THERE"........

"OVER THERE"....!!!!

capnaux said...

Such great pics of ya, all of 'em! Thanks for sharing!

BUT

WHAT did you do to your Embrair to force that nose gear up landing?!!!!!

Giulia said...

*laughing* while remembering...

falling off ottomans, dying of laughter only happens once in a while...and after a few!!

Thanks for that time. Over a week ago, already. ;)

@ Capn Eric--the question is: what DIDN'T she do? :)

Take care, everyone. Have a great day!

getjets said...

Cap'tn Eric............Hi there!!!

So glad you like all the pics......Was so fun...the stars lined up just for us, I do believe........no really they did!!!

OH..

WHAT DID "I" DO TO MY EMBRAER?????
to force a 'nose gear up' landing??????

Well the reports I read.........

Some yet to be identified A-320 Captain's "EGO"......was inadvertently stuffed past cargo hold....of the Embraer
and into the front 'nose gear' hold thingie......of the Embraer in question.....


Thank God, this said A-320's Captain's "EGO".....


well, I've heard from 'inside sources' the landing was the smoothest ever felt.......because of the shear size of the dang thang!!!!!!!
their still trying to pry it all the way OUT!!...........Mmmmmm:))))))))



you smiling...huh????

anymore questions????????

getjets said...

Missy G...........I knew you would "Crack-Up"....after my mentioning the ottoman thingie......incident...:)))))

maybe they should put seat belts on them............and look, my ass hit the floor a few times.......too........What Fun........!!!!!!!!
I know everyone is probably sick of hearing I Miss you.........TOUGH!!!!!!!!!!

Seatbelts would have helped! :)))

Looking forward to your pics from the hotel room window. Snow plows on the runway? ;)

Any pics from inside the hotel room? LOL!

What ever happened to the red tank top? *laughing*

Bas said...

Hi Julie!

I didn't comment here yet, a shame really! So many epic pictures, you two had a BLAST!

The camera man did a good job...wonder who it was ^^ hahaha :P

And although a little late, HELLO to Dave! You must be enjoying the Maldives....and the planes over there hehehe.

Looking forward to your hotel room pics Jules! Aviation Heaven hotel roomm xD

Bas

Giulia said...

LOL!

She's seriously moderating those hotel pics! :)))

Funny, though, she posted one right off the bat...then "the haunt" (she calls it) comes and she pulled it off.

:))

Giulia said...

Bassie,

Yes, the official event photographer put up with a lot of shenanigans. This person warned us frequently that we would lose our "member" status and get kicked out if we kept ignoring the rules of the museum. Oops...

Extreme patience and the utmost of tolerance was needed with us...(well, mostly Julie).

*kidding Jules*

We had fun with that "member" sticker by the way...ahem... *giggling*
