There are a lot of ways pilots say goodbye at the airport as they go off to fly or as they end a radio transmission. “Happy landings”, “blue skies”, “fly safe”, “keep the shinny side up and the dirty side down.” Or my father in law, Claude Lewis, who was also a pilot, used to say to me: “Keep it low and slow and a lot of bottom rudder in the turns”. I can’t remember if he started that before I married his daughter or if he was always that facetious but it is very bad advice in case you were thinking of trying it. If you pilots have any more of those kinds of sayings or greetings I would love to hear them. “May the sun and wind always be at your back.” Did I just make that up? Sounds a bit Irish.
Anyway, there is a new story in True Tales under Micronesia. Hope you like it.
