    That's an F-15 they scrambled.

    You might be able to get wasted and steal planes in Florida, but in these parts, we do it straight.

    Plane crashed. No passengers on board, only the "pilot" (an airplane mechanic like @Throbby Fart@Throbby Fart)

    No confirmation yet but it sounds like he dead.

    A friend of mine offered to teach me how to fly, he was a flight instructor at embry riddle in his previous job and has his own cessena, he was pissed off that he never used it and was gonna teach me for free just so it didn't sit there doing nothing and costing him fees for nothing. Wish I had taken up his offer.

    I've only ever been up in a small plane once. It was in Addison, Texas

    Second day at a new job, my boss took me and my other new Co worker up in the company plane for an aerial view around town

    It scared the shit out of me. I'll stick to riding on big planes

    TSA's focus on passengers is well documented, but the security of the people working out on the runways is laughable at best. Once people are cleared for employment and have their badge, most airports treat it like any other job. Scan the badge and clock in. No metal detectors. No scans. Nothing. It's a gaping hole in security that my buddy who works in the industry has been complaining about for years.

    If you see a pilot going through TSA, they likely parked in general like everyone else or they are on layover and chilling out in the concourse.

    Employees out with the planes - flaggers, mechanics, baggage - park in a separate spot and dont go through TSA because they don't ever get on the plane.

    It's not this way for every airport, but it is for many.

    Time to tee off...

    Ya'll heard of the Barefoot Bandit?
    It was like Catch me if you can up here for awhile.
    Smart kid, no security around airports yet, not like there should be.

    It's such an audastic venture, seems outta site and outta mind.
    But they're making grave errors imo.

    That was... sad. To hear a broken man having one last hoorah before ending it. I think it got a little dusty when he mentioned making a circle around Mt. Rainier and how beautiful it was.

    And I don’t know why they kept giving him advice. The man has played video games and knew what he was doing
