When I Delivered Time

959saI learned yesterday that a chapter of my life has officially reached its end.  AirNet Express, once known as U.S. Check, or simply The ‘Net to some of my fellow freight dogs, has all but closed its doors.

I wanted to share some of the stories and good times that I remember from those days.  Here are some of the highlights (in no particular order) of my freight hauling days.

The Interview

Snow Days

Checkrides

Air Traffic Control

Simulator Training

Pranks

Ramp Checks

Delivering Time

Having fun

Initial Learjet Training

And finally, this AMAZING video by JJ Guerra that is sure to make at least a few old freight dogs cry.

So long, Airnet, and thanks for all the good times, good friends, and training that was second to none, as evidenced by our notoriety in other circles of aviation.  I have lost count of how many times I heard, “Starcheck? Those pilots are crazy!”  Yep.  Crazy good, my friend.  Crazy good.

      I enjoyed re-reading these and remembering old friends and good times. My memory is like a mountain forest filled with morning fog. It’s nice to visit the trees I can no longer see as clearly as I once did.
