Say You'll Marry Me!

My good (real life) friend Ruth was proposed to recently - here's how he did it. Rather classy, if I do say so myself!

When I proposed to Mrs Jumblerant it was at a secluded spot in the desert, with candles adn champagne, and the unspoken threat that if she said 'no' she might be left there on her own...

8 years later and we're still together.

My blessings to you Ruth and Steven! So happy for you both.

Yup, with all of the European and American technology and the fear that the good lord put into us on 9/11 - we still managed somehow to let someone who should not be there, into the cockpit.

Nice work everyone involved.

Now, where did I put that railway timetable???

A Day in the Life of a Pilot

Ever wondered what pilots actually do before, during and after a flight? How does turbulence effect them? What do they eat and drink in the cockpit?

This is Captain Aux's first video blog so why not swing by his website 'Adventures of Captain Aux' to say 'hi' and see what else he has to offer?
