WE WISH WE WERE PRIME MINISTER

We fly a lot - BB's, son flys helicopters, There is a flying vet in the family as well, but today we were very very jealous of John Key. The lucky bugger got to ride in the Jump seat of a 737 from Auckland to Wellington. Journos up the front of the bus ( and BB ) were hoping the new PM may end up sitting in one of many empty seats but no - he ended up in the front, front seat with the pilots. We have long harboured a secret desire to fly with the fly boys.

He looked good, fresh and alert. We hope he picks a good fresh alert cabinet as well.

BB I doubt there will be any difficulty getting `a good fresh alert cabinet' now. The test will be having them in the same state in 2 and a half years time.

I've been in the jump seat of a 737, from Auckland to Queenstown and back... flown by two women pilots no less, and the cabin crew were male.

Been in the jump seat of a 747-400 going in to Hong Kong too.

Eat ya heart out.

In 1993 I was "selected" by the pilots of a 747 flying Auckland-Perth to accompany them on the flight deck. Those days are long gone. I was a brunette then too!

Even the old Kehua helped land a Jumbo at Honalulu courtesy of a very quick quaterhorse. Longway off the ground when landed.
