Homeward Bound

Los Angeles International Airport

It seems to never fail that I will end my 7 day rotation somewhere on the other side of the planet from where I live. Usually the day before my last day I end up on the west coast. Of course that’s where I am now. I took a few snaps this morning.

I’m sleeping

 

My wingman is only on day 3 and he’s on his way to another airport to crew another jet but we did have a chance to grab some breakfast together. This was my new obligatory hotel door shot.

The view from my hotel near Woodland Hills

 

Fortunately, being in the Los Angeles and having to travel in the traffic on a weekend is usually not as severe as through the week. But then this morning there’s a light drizzle happening. You would think most people here had seen it rain before or at least they don’t reflect that in their driving skills.

My limo ride

 

You know I don’t think I’ve ever seen the LA Airport not busy. Maybe I should request to fly the red eye just to see if its just as busy in the middle of the night around here.

LAX

 

Ok, time to reverse the negative thoughts and put on the my positive face. I really have nothing to complain about. I keep reminding myself that its just a journey and one must sit back and enjoy life as it passes by.

A Blustery Winter Day

This is what things looked like this morning as we arrived to the aircraft. Another beautiful day in the US Northeast, NOT. That being said, we were here in plenty of time and the ramp was not busy. Even before the fuel truck arrived, we had a lineman already at the aircraft with a “scraper” to help remove the big stuff.

Soon the fuel truck arrived but the snow was not slowing down.

Fortunately the snow did begin to ease up and we able to get on our way out to the west coast. Along the way we passed over the Colorado Rocky Mountains and they looked spectacular today.

When we landed at our destination there was another crew there to continue on to Hawaii and I went to the hotel.
