If at first you don't succeed, maybe NDB approaches just aren't for you

A330 and B737NG
Bucket List could never be full, but Sopwith Camel is at the top. I haven't truly used rudder pedals in a LONG time though, so that would end badly and quickly.
Dream Job - have it, but would also love to see a B747-8 based in YWG.

The average pilot, despite the somewhat swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.
