Does anyone know if someone has ever made it into the right seat at MK from being a loadie? I know of other companies where this may be possible.
What about flight engineers? Have any made the transition there?
I nominate the secretary there for an f/o slot, she shouldnt have to get around on her hands and knees cleaning dust.:D

yes, i have heard of a loadie being upgraded with mk. this was a few years ago, when they only had diezel 8's.

one of their current B747 captains is an ex hanger spanner/loadmaster with affretair, he then operated as fe/fo with AIN, then as a DC8 capt with MK.
so anythings possible with the right attitude and chances.:ok:

Right, can I buy a Rhodie passport? No, they've run out of paper, but I can let you have a copy of the Green Leader tape; that'll get you in:D 4HP
What if you are just an aussie that wants to fly around spewing black soot into the sky? Surely that counts for something;)
I will keep trying anyway.
