Doug and Drew are joined by Andy, a former airline employee and lifelong fringe avgeek who also makes a mean Aviation (the drink). Will our Old Fashioned’s be replaced by Aviations as our signature Next Trip cocktail? Andy and Drew reminisce about their final 747 flight and then Doug regales us with his white knuckle touch and go landings in the DC10 simulator this week!
Other topics discussed:
- Andy remembers his favorite aviation moment when he watched a 747 transport the Space Shuttle Discovery to Washington Dulles Airport
- Avelo Airlines launches 737 service from Burbank to Santa Rosa. Will its leisure point to point model work?
- An Alaska government official gets banned for not complying with mask guidelines and has to figure out how to get from Anchorage to Juneau
- Alaska Airlines launches a special livery which Drew doesn’t dislike
We finish this week with an update on Next Trip Northern fLights. We will be on Alaska flight 65, the “Milk Run” departing Seattle at 830a on Friday, May 7 and arriving in Anchorage at 415p. We’ll meet everyone at the Moose’s Tooth Pub at 630p to plan our spotting the next 2 days.
