Approaching Beirut, the pic does it no justice, honestly a beautiful city, probably one of the most scenic I've ever seen... shitty approach controller though, had to do some -200 hand flying to get vaguely in the slot and a "Boeing" landing :lol: :haha: :wacko:

ahhwww...tnx...that was real nice....be safe out there. You guys are probably more safe up there than we here on the ground....had a armed robbery in our crescent on tuesday night but tnx to a very good alert neighbour, one of the scum bit the dust and fell on the pavement about three metres from my front door...the others fled in a C-class silver Merc and some on foot. Our neighbour that was 'robbed;. they didn't had time to flee with the bait, was on vacation in Thailand...got this surprising news when they landed the next day at O.R.T. Police said the deceased already had a criminal record and 'they're' most probably from Soweto.....why come threat us here in Bethlehem is beyond understanding....must have an info network all over the country and informants most probably house/garden workers....say no more....at least we're still alive tnx to the young neighbour who carries he's gun 24/7 with him...he was well within the law....shoot out of self defence...and only got a bullet through the material of his tracksuit....lucky for him.

A fun observation not fact but, everytime we take off behind an A320 we outperform it ridiculously... we are faster and have a higher climb rate and we are always full! Always seems to happen, just saying, the old classic ain't to bad in the climb :lol: :yikes:

Back to reality, it's a mandatory day off and heading to the Good Pub now :beer:
