Hervey Bay yes, but I meant why the particular aircraft. It certainly ain't in the normal Jetstar colours...

Question

What's your issue with that in a commercial operation?
Must admit that I'm curious too Bentleg.

Care to answer the question put by Mr Fanelli?

Let me answer it with a question. Why do you "need" to wear them?

Before we leap off down a tangent there is a thread dedicated to this topic. My post there says -

Stripes, bars, pips etc in the services are so one can instantly recognise the rank and qualifications of an individual in crisis situations when there is not time to ask or discuss.

In civilian life, especially flight training it is a wank (feeding the ego). You should earn your respect by what you do and know - not from the bars on your shoulder.
I suggest further discussion of the stripes/epaulettes issue could take place in the thread mentioned.

Then why did you bring it up here?
Do you feel the same way about QANTAS or Virgin pilots?
Where do you draw the line, I'm guessing your line is drawn just below where you're at in the industry.

Thumbs down

Why the epaulets? Because they're probably required by their employer!

If the stripes, pips and bars are for crisis situations, why do Defence people wear them at all times? Why not when they go into combat? In fact, it's the opposite isn't it. When they go into combat the rank comes OFF. So much for that theory.

(Seriously someone needs to look at something for a good )

Keg said it all! In my case bentleg, I was handed a pair of epaulets by the Chief Pilot when I started with the company and told ''make sure you wear them when you're flying.''

If you have a problem with that.......tough!

Towering Q

Are you kidding? It takes a long time to get them to look like that.
Nothing worse than fresh new bars, makes you look inexperienced.
Anyway, nevermind the bars, what about those mutton chops???

Because in the event of a crash, it gives the rescuers something to grab onto & drag you out!

Like worn epaulets, the 'mutton chops' probably come with experience. I'm a little suprised there are no 'flavour savers' on board.

Would that be a Navajo/Chieftain they are driving? Pardon my ignorance as I come from the Wichita Kansas camp.

185sw, my "snail" seems much more determined to go somewhere than yours, which appears to be either lost, demented or p*ssed!
FTDK, 185sw's "snail" has a kangaroo loose in the top paddock!

TQ, Chieftain it is. Although not sure which one - possibly the late lamented NPD.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) you can't see the ones sported by the guy on the left because his headset's covering them!
