@f86sabre Congrats! It's awesome, right? I went up in the Madras Maiden a few years back. My dad was in the top turret during his time on a B17. I chuckled, because when I was seated for takeoff, most of the men on the plane were older than me. I mentioned my dad had been in one during the war, one guy corrected me, you mean your grandfather, right? Nope, my dad. 09098DCD-90B4-45BA-A789-EE2BDD79B8E5.jpeg
That is very cool. Just have been great to go on a flight with him!
@facw especially the southern Indian Ocean. There's rather a lot of open water between Australia and Madagascar and only a handful of small islands most of which are close to Madagascar or further north..
@ranwhenparked This reminds me of that Fight Club scene where Edward Norton's character talks about the auto manufacturer's accounting for if/if not to submit a recall. Sounds like Boeing calculated "correctly". Which is gross.
