That view from your hotel room...And live atc..Yes you're addicted!:)
next time, you should find a radio and control the traffic:)

Easy way to be a F/O:
1-Wait for the F/O to leave
2-Sneak into cockpit
3-Take the seat on the right
4-Smile to the camera
:)

Giulia said...

I loved your comment, Metin! :)))
She truly is an addict...and I love her dearly for it!

Julie--I remember the screaming in the airport when we first saw each other! LOL! And that damn parking ticket I lost?! ANOTHER LOL!

Hey--that chicken is MINE!!! He's hanging out at the house right now.

Love the flight deck pic, girl. See Dave? She didn't need to show her tan lines. (and cause a ruckus when landing...)

We had so much fun at "the fence"...hanging out in the Not-So cold, with the photographers and other geeks.

That older gentlemen was precious, telling us so many stories.

I'll probably look over your pics some more and comment BUT before I go...I laughed at your weather network photo. Remember the hard time I had trying to explain what -11 F meant!?!?!?

"OH! 11 F is cold.."
" No, Jules, - 11 F...."

...

It was a comedic sketch after that!

getjets said...

Hello Metin...............Yes.......I was so Lucky to get in the cockpit......
and a bit ole Hell Yes, I'm ADDICTED!!!

If I would have known to have a radio.......I woulda had the damn snow plows cleared for departure.....too.......LOL

I completed your check list......
What a Geek.........;)))))

Please come back soon...to visit......
you working......

getjets said...

Hell....Yea......Missy G......
I was so Damn excited to finally meet you.....
lost Parking ticket and all!!!!!!!...lol

And before anyone starts thinking I'm some sort of 'FREAKY DEAKIE', having the plastic chicken......

It'a a Mardi Gras throw.....I probably had 50+ of them...for when I road Lundi Gras Day.....

only very "special" people get a Chicken for their own from me........;))))


before I knew it.....I was calling this one Dave......

don't take it personally Dave.....it's a plastic chicken for Christ's sake.........ha ha!!


Now he belongs to gg.....get your own chicken......
Poor Dave, he just got back from vac/holi......and hasn't even caught a breath.......yet..



G and I hung out every single nite at my hotel room.....watching the planes come and go.....matching them with "flightaware".....and live ATC......course few glasses of wine.....never hurt.......
LOL
glad you like the pictures!!!!!!!

(((HUGS)))

Giulia said...

The chicken is MINE!!!

:))

Glasses of wine? Just a few...(ahem)

Well, there was some dancing, and polluting of blogs...

There was some laughing...and falling off chairs...


AND we can't forget our luck--chatting online with someone special. That was a fluke.

Dave W said...

Jules, these are a truly brilliant set of pics......

I think it's great that the pilots are so accomodating - it must have been fantastic to release your inner geek with someone who actually understands the affliction! I bet you two were busy egging each other on LOL!

Who you callin chicken?? :)

All the best

Dave from (and in) the UK :))

ps - has something changed (yet again) on blogger - I used to be able to get comments e-mailed to me but that option seems to have disappeared - or is it just my chicken brain playin tricks on me??

Foggy said...

Some more good pics there ^J^. And nice to see you got in the RHS!! Next time... LHS, or nothing!

Love the pics of the snow. That "little" fall would have put the UK out of business for a month.

And the FedEx Freighter is an A300-600 series. The flight deck windows are different to the Boeings and, if you "zoom-in" on the image, the wing end-plates/finlets can just be seen.

That 1stAir Cargo B727 is a smart looking aircraft - I like the "almost-retro" scheme...!!

Dave - blogger has changed!!!

capnaux said...

OMG I don't know when you had the better time--after getting to YOW, or on the way!!

Yes, tan lines or a 4yo are serious requirements that should only be breeched in an emergency--but I'd let ya in, too--even give you MY seat, lol!!

Giulia said...

Cap'n Eric, that is a sweet gesture. You will probably regret offering, but it is sweet nonetheless.

Dave--yes, we were egging each other on, for sure! It was terrible and terribly fun too. You'll know what that means when we have our international conference. ;)

Foggy, thanks for helping us on the Fed Ex. We didn't know what it was...Julie did guess an Airbus though...

I see you gave a little TMI, Foggster, on Bas's blog. LOL...you don't DO boxers? *snicker*

Julie, have fun tonight with your margaritas. Moderation, please (Ha!)

Bas said...

Julie those pics are awesome! You got to sit in the FO seat, epic! (And without tan lines lol!) Dave could learn something from that!

Great pictures you took, you got some cool jets over there we don't get to see here.

And the chicken, lol! My uncle has a huge dog and éxactly the same thing is its toy, fun to throw with hahaha.

Take care! Next time, make sure Captain Eric is flying you :P

Bas

getjets said...

Dave W...........Soooo glad your back....safe and sound....!!!

and continue a life of victimization....KIDDING!!!!!!

Thanks you for the compliments.....on my pics!!!

I have to say..the whole crew which was the Pilot,F/O & only 1 F/A....were so Friendly!!!

and the Pilot....was a bit of a jokster.....so we clicked right off the bat....

was really nice.....big plus......I wasn't embarassed......one bit!!!

so again Welcome Home.......!!

Nope cant' have the plastic chicken.....it belongs to Missy G.......
but if you ask nice.....see what I can do.........:))))

Be good now Dave W from the Beautiful UK!!!
Jules

getjets said...

HI FOGGY!!!!.......Thanks.....

yes Next time the LHS!!!!!

and for clearing up what exactly the FedEx jet was........I know I kept my eye on that puppy for several days.......during that crazy snow storm.......!!!!

I think I was the only one, who thought the snow storm was so Lovely.....guess because, I was carrying my Ass back home to warm, in a few.....

Knew you'd Love the "Firtst Air"727!!!

See ya Soon!!!!!!!

getjets said...

Yep Capt'n Eric.........each Step, Stop, Stay, was an Adventure...!!!
I stopped and lived each....one to be sure not to miss anything........!!!!

I'll hold ya to your offer to let me in, flightdeck
And giving up your seat to me.............and without any 'lip'from ya........too.......ha ha

So clean the place up!......;))))))


Safe Flying Capt'n E..

getjets said...

getjets said...

Hey Bas...Glad you like these pics.........too!!!

getjets said...

Ha Ha............Missy G........You were holding something over my head............a snowball.......while our butts were down in the snow.........
What an Awesome Night......that was........!!!!!!!!!!!!


even my "filthy ass dirty" Grey Goose martini"......was sooo good!!!
and the company I shared.......and the steak.........dinner!!!

ooopsie............

Missing You too...........!!!!!

Foggy said...

"...can't have Foggy getting confused.........OH NO!!!!!!!!!..love ya Fog..........!!"

HaHa... yeah, sure ya do!!

;)

Giulia said...

Oh Foggster, you know we love you...

Oh yes, your extremely filthy dirty martini--oof! I like olives but yours was serious!!

You were so excited to see snow, you had to fall in it! LOL!

It was a beautiful scene after that snowstorm.

The dinner was great, the conversation was amazing, and you spread your happiness to everyone we met. Our server will NEVER forget the day you came to that restaurant. You MADE her week!!!

Don't worry about the backseat driving. The hole in the car's floor board can easily be repaired. xo

Giulia said...

P.S. We need a new post with pics please.....ahem....*laughing*

capnaux said...

Don't worry, dear. When it comes to the cockpit, I'm a neat freak!
