"Did He Say Bomb?"

Post by (A/229) BBall on Sun 29 Mar 2015 - 3:19

Hey you fine collection of humans beings!

Just updated my blog with a piece about a bomb threat I had many years ago. I'm still working on the "Hatch" stories (they're a bit disjointed and spread out over several hard drives), and hope to have one up soon....

Have a great day all.

Thanks again B.

Ahhh - the loneliness of Command!

The only thing I would have done differently would have been the final PA:

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. I would like to welcome you to New York. Again, we’re sorry about the delay today, and I would like to sincerely thank you for all your patience. Also, if you were wondering about the “firm” arrival a few minutes ago, my First Officer would like to pass on his sincerest apologies....."

Naturally without pressing the PTT switch - Then given your humble PA to the PAX.

Thanks gents.

Samri....you're a TRUE Captain!!!!

Many is the time that the trusty F/O did a "painted it on the runway" type landing, and while at the deplaning door a passenger will look at me and say "nice landing". My reply..."THANKS"....

...hehe.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Very nice as always BBall, loved the "My “steely-eyed, squared-jawed, Captain-like” response came out as, “Huh?”
