to live. Why anyone would choose to live just a few feet above sea
level in an area where hurricanes are common place is just silly! 8)
You don't have to launch a HAB flight from Florida... you can always
drive to an area more conducive to recovery options. You can also work
on the Trans-Atlantic crossing flights as as well... Ron K6RPT didn't
let a little bitty thing like the North American continent stand in
his way when doing a Trans-Atlantic HAB flight!
I don't have access to whale watching where I live, but I can gain
access to the activity. Yes, some areas are more conducive to certain
activities over others, but you can't hide behind that excuse forever!
Think I will be sticking to an Airbus plane when I board one next, not great when your pilots leave the aircraft early
