Merry Christmas!

I would like to once again wish all the readers of this blog a very Merry Christmas and best wishes during this holiday season. It's worth mentioning that this is my 200th post - all of you help push me to continue writing. Your comments and readership are much appreciated.

This has been a tough holiday for me personally due to unexpectedly losing my stepfather just last week. Friends and family are what make it possible to keep smiling during hard times. I'm thankful for the many friends I have met via both this blog and my love of aviation.

On a much more lighthearted note, I recently came across a video that brought a smile to my face. You may know of my ire for the TSA and this touches on that topic. Hopefully you will enjoy this aviation-related holiday humor as well!


  1. Congratulations on 200 excellent posts ... that many? Wow.

    Also, thanks for the Merry Christmas note you left for me and a return of the same to the 'both' of you ... may next year be one of the happiest for you (marriage). I'm sorry to hear of the unexpected passing of your stepfather. My condolences to you and your family.

  2. Thanks for all of the above, Rich. Merry Christmas!

  3. Ive been reading your blogs for quite sometime but this is the first time I'm gonna comment. Maybe because there's a need to congratulate you for your 200th post. That's an achievement. AS they say, time flies when you enjoy what you are doing.

    Belated happy Christmas and cheers to 2011!

    PS: Sorry for your loss. It'll be okay.

  4. Steve & Gina,

    Merry Christmas!! Congrats on the 200th....allways great pictures and write-ups.

  5. Thanks, John and Gary.

    Here's to another 200+ posts and a Merry Christmas to both of you, too!

  6. Sorry to hear about your stepfather.

    I'm looking forward to many more flying posts in the new year!

  7. I appreciate the condolences, Paul.

    Recent events have obviously prevented much flying - I've barely been home. And with a trip to Japan/Korea in less than a week, it'll take a bit of luck to get up beforehand... but I'm going to try!

  8. I am sorry about your step father :(. And Merry Christmas for the year 2015
