Does this jet make me look fat?

Postby Keith Smith » Tue Dec 10, 2013 9:06 am

Jim Price and Matt Ford both have full size 737 cockpits at their home. They were flying together on PE last Saturday when we noticed that Matt (SWA1098) was gaining quickly on Jim (GTH66). Fun ensued:

It's got everything you need, veiled references to Jim's weight, not-so-veiled-references to Jim's weight, a stuck mic from Jim, and a poor slob trying to do his I2 rating in the middle of it (AXX227, Michael Towe).

Original recording, fairly busy, their stuff starts around the 12 min mark: http://assets.pilotedge.net/recordings/ ... _17510.mp3

I was quite surprised flying my CRJ IRL when I heard a Gotham callsign.

For the record the poor slob passed the I2 despite the comedy show! To be honest though it was quite a good comedy show!!!

Thanks for the laughs gents!
