The problem wasn't the number of tires, but that flats occurred on the same truck, resulting in an inability to get a jack under the truck and a lack of a jack that could at that Afghan location.  Is it really so that some of you lead such limited lives that you find a day in the life of, to be remarkable?  Good god.

 

And yes, it was a 747-200.

Are you all-military, no real world experience? If so, then yes, it may. Once out, the world does not owe you a living. You make your own.

No...not at all. Thank you.

Congrats on your plethora of job interviews. You must be swell outside the intra-webs as well.

i'd be willing to bet he is just as big of a dickhead in real life & gets his ass kicked often.

 

To show ya what a big man he is?  Slanders ppls on the internet, and hides behind being anonymous.

 

And as far as the flat tires? i think i "made up" the flat tires on the 747 for that "spoof annual" that he had done on his 747. NOW? we come to find that was real?... No, the story i remember of his job was broken down car and walked to local airport & got hired on the spot.

 

,,,, and there i was, behind enemy lines, 4 flats on one "truck" (thats what we real 747 pilots call one landing gear),, i ate 3 cans of spinach, 2 bowls of wheaties, and lifted it by the wing while i waited for the mechanics to show up,, after an hour ? i got tired (hee hee heee, pun?) and whipped out my corncob pipe (who's threat just happened to match those of the shreder valve),, i huffed & puffed and blew all 4 tires up !  yes, then i hopped in the cockpit, rescued the fair maiden and we flew off to honkey doorey for pina coladas.-----------OK mom !!  be there in a second,, i'm busy!

Jokes on you!  The term is "inter-web" and no plural "s".


Just a pilot (retired, so I have a LOT of time)...

I hope you are joking.  If not... well... you know...or you don't.

I said nothing aboutthe number of job interview's I've sought, or had, nor did I state regarding the number of jobs. Congratulations on what, then?

Fact is, the topic is cold calling, not me. The usual crowd repeatedly finds it nearly impossible to contribute in any meaningful way to the topic, perhaps due to lack or intellect or possibly just lack of experience, but cannot resist the small-minded effort to discuss me. Little wonder. Those of low intellect tend to resort to discussions of people, while those of slightly higher acumen point toward things and places. Neither seems up to the task of discussing ideas. We see this here, quite clearly.

Don't sell yourself short, a**hole. You're included with the others. You're just too stupid to know it.

Awww... little guy is angry.  

 

Your posts sound like someone attempting to release his teenage angst and rage.

My posts are someone who knows how to see results cold calling, which is the topic.  Something on which you clearly have nothing to offer.

 

Again, small intellect, can't get past talking people.  No experience, nothing to offer.  Your position is clear.

What, you would prefer to see the three of them slag each other off, instead of following the thread? Go to JB then.

The game is all about the opponent, the ball is just used to make it fun and so we can call it a game. What games do you play the ball?---except for pinball, then we know its all in the way you hold yer tongue and sway yer hips.
