All aircraft have at least one if not two jumpseats. The purpose is for a safety pilot or examiner.
also all aircraft have an axe on the flight deck in case of emergency so no need to smuggle hammers..etc
On a lighter note the news here today said there would be rain and they were right, our second day of rain in eleven months! No one knows were the windscreen wipers are so drive with their hazard lights on but still at 140kph!
in 640 King Eadbald of Kent dies and is succeeded by his two sons.
was a hot and humid run this morning. Was on the beach this afternoon with my kids when the rain started, our second day of rain in 11 months! I'm now sitting outside under a parasol enjoying the rain and having a beer. When I grew up in Northern Ireland I saw plenty of rain but it's a novelty now!
I never eat breakfast but always have a coffee and some water before I head out, never feel that hungry afterwards but will usually have some fruit and eggs. I don't use gels either just water or water mixed with Nuun tablets.
its worked okay for me since I started running in 1988 so why change?
