This one’s for Old NFO…

. . . who’s probably traveled more miles in aircraft, military and civilian, during his eventful life than most of us have over the same period, in cars!  He’s described some of those flights on his blog from time to time.

From the ‘Pearls Before Swine’ cartoon strip last weekend (click the image for a larger view at the cartoon’s home page):



  1. The nightmare flight was a red eye from LAX to Philly. It was a full flight. The aircraft was 3/4 filled with 8th graders on a class trip. So help me God,every single one of them had braces. As soon as the seat belt sign went off they got up and opened overhead bins and ran around looking for friends. They never shut up, never sat still and never stopped climbing over people.

    I prayed for turbulence but the flight was smooth a silk. The flight attendants ran around closing bins and trying to get the little bastards to quiet down without success. The FA's even handed out free drinks to those of us in need.
