I just flew an approach with the Auto Pilot and Auto Throttles off an hour ago. I make it a point to always disconnect the AP at 1000 AGL on every approach except in marginal Wx, and at least once a...

Where are some of the pilots from the “Ice Pilots” now?

“Ice Pilots” was one of my favorite shows. I was wondering if anyone knows where some of those pilots are today? I hope many of them went on to enjoy successful careers!

Chicago was a poor choice on so many levels. They really should move their HQ to the “Big Red Barn” and remember why Boeing became a great corporation to begin with.
