Things like this give me hope that our country hasn’t completely lost our minds.  I follow his Twitter account and it is nothing but great.

I’ve previously mentioned that I want to get the BPK 737 kits.  They’ve now shown the box art for the 737-800 kit.  I was hoping for SWA, but it looks like I’ll have to look to aftermarket.

Death of an American hero

Herb Kelleher died yesterday at 87.  He was a lawyer and most importantly the founder of Southwest Airlines. He was a titan among american businessmen.  I had the pleasure of meeting him on two occasions and the adoration of his employees was nothing short of amazing.

This report seems to indicate that Boeing screwed up. Not sure how you could install a new safety system and not brief pilots on the change.  I wonder if there is more to the story.
