CAT III Approach

Giulia said...

CAT III Approach, I think that will make Julie VERY HAPPY. She needed that pick-me-up! :)

See, Jules? Everyone wants to see you smile!

Yes, Foggy, I will be visiting Jules. I don't know if you will see any pics. Jules has a serious moderation going on here. :)))

I can't wait to be a part of the newest episode of Swamp People. !!!!! KIDDING JULES!!!! :))) KIDDING!!!!

Bas said...

Nice pictures Jules!

Foggy was faster lol, I agree it's an A300 :P N668FE if my eyes aren't fooling me neither.

Funny how you made two pictures of the aircraft from different angles. You did leave the curtain open though when you left the hotel room! :P

So you're going to visit Jules this summer Giulia? Epic! I should go to farnborough (not sure if that's spelled correctly) and drag Foggy and Dave over there too! :P

Take care and have a nice weekend everyone!

Bas

getjets said...

MissTWA/GetJets/Friend

getjets said...

NO "SWAMP PEOPLE"....all I can say about that show.......

Ughhh....give me the alligators.......

as for the other characters....serious case of "Over Exaggeration" !!!!

course, our "Swamps" and "Bayous", are very Beautiful......and the Cajun People are the most "welcoming and friendliest" folks in the world!!!!!!

and I do look forward to showing you everything......GG!!!!

Ha Ha.....with the 'pic moderation'........insecurity.....
in it's purest state...no false modesty here.......

yes I did need a pick me up....and you do put a smile on my face daily...little girl....

getjets said...

Oh Bas.......the curtain was open the whole time I was there in Ottawa.......especially at night.......(oh my...lol)
and the "live YOW ATC" was just a blaring away too!!!

GG and I were shameless Geeks.....;))))))

YES........you should pick up Foggy, Dave, Metin, Edwin.....all our buddies....oh yea,....don't forget me........ha ha, and all go to the Farnborough Airshow!!!!!!!

now that would be EPIC!!!!!!!!

you can use my "GO SAINTS 747"
Have a Great Week Bas Man!!!!

capnaux said...

Cute post, J!

Love the two of you looking down at the camera--classic!

Oh, ya, and love the plane pics, too! ;)

Come visit my blog soon. It's getting lonely. People seem to be stopping by but for some reason aren't commenting! (Dunno why; I worked hard on that last post and am dang proud of it lol!)

getjets said...

Hey Capt'n........don't worry...dauling...

"If you build it........they will come"..........:)))


No serious.....you do put a lot of work into your posts, and .....blogs can be very time consumming....I think your doing very well actually......!!...you have plenty of 'followers'......


look at my 'followers' list......I'm following my own blog.........TWICE!!!(I have no idea how that happened..my avatar twice)......and so is Dave......"TWICE"
makes me look even more popular.......LOL..


glad you like the 'plane' pics..........TOO....eshhhhh:)

maybe you should give out cookies....at your blog......Ha Ha...trust me......
your hard work does "Not".....go unnoticed!!!

Jules..

Giulia said...

*Laughing at Julie and her follower comments*

I have no idea how you are following your own blog twice! HAHAHAHA...Maybe I should sign up again too!

Cap'n--I read your post and I agree with Julie. You DO put a lot of time into your posts. I'm sure they are MUCH appreciated by the readers. Try the cookie idea, it doesn't hurt, does it? If that doesn't work, you can always hassle your followers like Jules does. Kinda feel like you're at home, you know?

Julie, I love your Jupiter and Venus photo. They have been dancing around each other in the night sky, haven't they? :) I like when you get poetic, you hopeless romantic. (either that or it was the wine...*giggle*)

Have a great evening, everyone. :)

Dave W said...

Hey Jules!

Apologies for speelling here - its late and Chardonnay is involved!

The Luc (wife to non-followers - shame on you!) asked why I was not out in the garden taking pics of the same planets! Great to see you too are viewing them from the other side of the world, how cool?

Great to hear Missy G is returning to the scene of the crime and visiting Louisiana!! How cool would it be if we could all meet up someday (somewhere hot - NOT keen on the snow!)

Bas, my office is a couple of miles for Farnborough, I press my face to the glass when even just the bizjets go over - during the Farnborough air show - its embarrassing!! :) If you go, I'll see you there!

Just flown (virtually) from Miami to St Maarten in the 767, now trying to convince the Luc its where we should go for our next vacation, watch this space!!

All the best!!

Dave from the UK :)

Giulia said...

St Maarten, eh? Hmmmmm...

Worldwide Conference of the AAS? Possible, just possible.

Jules?

getjets said...

Oh GG....I'm glad you like my Jupiter and Venus....pic......those 2 are forever "sparring........"
......just the tease is intoxicating......

and yes.......St Maarten.......all of us.......OMG.....how AWESOME that would be.........course as long as it isn't during whaling season.........Jeez.....

Oh Dave........who says we can't all get together one day.........!!!!!

Dave........I want a pic of Jupiter and Venus taken from your garden............Pleeeze......Luc make him take one.........Ha Ha....

Bas said...

Nice picture of Venus & Jupiter! I alway see soem very bright objects in the sky when it's clear...never know what they are. (Can't really see stars here atm) Someone once told me they were planets...pretty cool. I like searching for sattelites too ^^

Bas (It's your B'day soon right!? :) )

Bas said...

Dave, St. Maarten for sure! It was a lot more expensive than where I'm going in June now but else I would've done it! :P

getjets said...

Dave......LOOK!!!!!!.......get your camera........take the damn pic of Venus and Jupiter.......
and put down both glasses of wine first.....LOL..

then Post it!!!
where you and Luc.....seem to have no problem......."harassing"..........
LOLOLOLOL

I want to see.....pleeeeeze!!!

ha ha......embarassing to stick you face to the window.....at the Farbourough air show....

Bas......What Birthday????

your vaca will soon be here.....!!
how exciting.......!!!!
remember I want to track you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


btw......everyone should check out the extra pic I posted here.....of a little Tug......!!!..so Damn cute!!!!!!!!

Great Day to all my Friends here!!!!!!!!

Giulia said...

Yes, Bas... her birthday is soon. *sorry Jules*

Julie, the tug is so cute!!! Remember we said we wanted to drive it around?

Good morning, everyone!

getjets said...

yep........we should have jobs driving those little tugs.......

and waving the planes into place with the red baton thingie's.......

and we laughed......because not one plane would end up in the right place because we would be gawking at the plane next to it........:))))

capnaux said...

Great shot! I had Venus and Jupiter staring through our front window all the way from BWI to BUR last night--very cool! I understand you will be able to see ALL nekkid-eye planets at the same time soon...not sure when...this week?? Google it I guess!

Thanks for all the thumbs ups and advice about the blog, guys!! I feel mo betta now, lol! You guys joke so much about "cookies" though I'm starting to wonder which kind you're talking about--the real ones or the ones that computers plant, lol!

Giulia said...

Morning, everyone!

The planets were perfect last night! I kept looking at them shining so brightly! :)

Yes, Cap'n, there is a day when you can see a number of them all at once. Let me Google...

Have a great day all--today is going to be VERY warm in Ottawa. Almost in the 30s (Celsius)....can you believe it?!?! It is totally bizarre but I am greedily enjoying it. :)

Ciao.

Dave W said...

Hi Jules et al,

Thanks for posting the pics - I was really chuffed with the heart, the wife wondered what the hell I was doing in the garden waving a torch around!! LOL! Perhaps I should have 'shopped it to turn the brightness up a bit but hey, that's how I took it!

I hope you didn't oversleep with all that tail hunting!

Hey Cap'n Aux, next time you see those planets - grab your camera! :)

Hey GG, send some of that warmth over the pond on the gulf stream will ya? (that's the meteorological kind - your virtual warmth is always with us!)

Dave from the UK

Giulia said...

Awwww...Dave!!! You made my DAY!

I will try to send the warm temps your way, okay? :)

Today, it's Dress like a Celebrity Day. No one knows who I am...but if you aren't Katy Perry or Justin Bieber they haven't a clue. Ugh.

Like the costume? *limited time only*

Dave W said...

Hey G, is this another game like guess the tail?

My guess is Cruella Deville - I hope I haven't just insulted you!!

Giulia said...

Oh that would have been good too! I will be her next year! I don't have to change colour scheme!

No, this is Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's)...please tell me you know her...please, I'm not THAT old, am I?

:)

Yes, it was kind of a game, but not "guess my tail" AHEM!

getjets said...

Hey Missy G.......couldn't see our lovely stars last night......with the low 'cloud deck'........and the serious....winds out of the south!!


and Dave's lovely pics posted........Thanks again Dave.......!!

I love the "torch"..effect....
actually I would have loved to see you waving a torch around in the shape of a heart......just for us.......LOL

GG....have you found out yet........when the STARS are supposed to

"LINE UP AND WAIT".....
ha ha.....for us.......to see??????

Capt'n E,....So Glad you feel
'Mo Better'.....you've got a good thing going with your site...!!!!!


I appreciate your visits here very much.......
and I always have 'REAL' Cookies too........LOL
paint brushes not included.......:))))

getjets said...

Dave......I am not EVEN.....gonna talk about how much time I spent......looking for your DAMN Mystery Tail...........!!!!.LOL


You ever heard of the so called reality show....

"Intervention"......????

I can just see my whole family around me......and telling me.....if I don't get help with my "Unhealthy Aviation Addiction".........they'll cut me off.......
Hey.....Cut my Ass Off......Please........;)))))

No more hints for you either.....HA!!!

getjets said...

Hey........GG............
LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR NEW AVATAR..............THAT IS SEXY!!!!!!!
Audrey.........
how perfect!!!!!!!!!!

Now give me that DAMN HAT......LOL

Giulia said...

Hi Jules,

OMG!! It took you soooo long BUT you id'd Dave's tail!!! Congratulations!

Now the world can rest...now you can get some work done...now you can sleep. Dave, she needs help BADLY! Yes, Julie, I see you on Intervention. But your friends here would be considered enablers!

:)

It was another record warm day here in Ottawa. Yesterday, it was a beautiful clear night and I just sat and gazed at the stars...Jupiter and Venus seemed brighter than ever.

Dave--the heart is soooo lovely. We "heart" you back.

And Cap'n E--I like the thought of you brushing crumbs and dust off with a paint brush. Endearing in a OCD kinda way. ;)

Jules, I'll give you the damn hat!!! xox
