A few weeks back I had the honor being interviewed by Enjoy Flying in their new “Pilot of the Week” segment. Since then two additional pilots have been featured, and it is a great read, so head over there and check them out. Click the picture below to be forwarded to my interview.
I am very busy these days with various work to get done, so I haven’t been able to post nearly as much as I want to. Today I’d like to share some random pictures taken by me or my loadmasters the last two weeks. My first day was spent doing an audit, so not much pictureworthy about that. The rest was much better though.
I really love flying the B2. Though not as powerful as the B3, it is a very smooth ride. And as far as internal load goes, it is sometimes better than the B3, seeing as some of them have a higher dry operating weight. This bird has more than 12 000hrs.
Later in the week I was given a B3 in order to carry out some heavier lifts and improve my range between refuelling. The most notable difference in the cockpit compared to the B2 is the inclusion of the VEMD screens. New B2s will have this as well, but none of ours do.
