    Thank you. And yes, I had just come in after my pre-flight check outside. And imagine doing that in the Boston winter, in an open airfield with the wind and snow (230/3, if I remember right).

    Q: What's the difference between a pilot and a jet engine?
    A: A jet engine stops whining when the plane shuts down.


    Q: How do you know if there is a pilot at your party?
    A: He'll tell you.


    Q. How do you know your date with the fighter pilot is half over?
    A. He says "but enough about me - wanna hear about my plane?"
