Another day at the office

One of our still photographers shot these on a shoot I directed this morning. The project is a marketing video for a new interactive maintenance training program for the 787.

They were changing an engine on this particular plane, hence the red lock-out tags on various things on the flight deck. The 787 is not my favorite airplane but it does have a nice flight deck.

The laptop the maintenance instructor is holding is how mechanics interface with the entire plane. It connects wirelessly to the airplane's fault diagnosis system and the central maintenance computer, it contains all the manuals for the plane and contains all the step-by-step maintenance procedures to fix any fault on the plane. It--- other than replacement parts and tools--- is the only thing the mechanics take to the plane to work on it.

Looks cramped

The first photo is my day job letter carrier 'office'. The second is my personal 'office' where I go photographing with my hiking partner. No walls cramping me in

I like both of your offices a lot. But can you take them to 45,000 feet in perfect comfort and be on the other side of the world in a matter of hours?

Well, not really, but can you graze on psilocybin growing at your feet, then astro-travel through the far depths of the Universe or fall endlessly on fractal geometric waves into the tips of fern fronds.

Not saying I do it, but the option is definitely there!

That's true unless you took flats of psilocybin and ferns on the plane with you. Then you could say "I grazed on psilocybin growing at my feet, then astro-traveled through the far depths of the Universe and fell endlessly on fractal geometric waves into the tips of fern fronds in Ireland."

Office? What's an office?

Oh, I kind of remember that term. It was a place several miles from home where I surfed on boating websites much of the day. Yeah, that was it!

Sigh...

It'll be about 13 years before I get to post a smug, nasty, low bellied, self satisfying comment like that

Not enough dials, switches, buttons, screens and gauges on your flight deck, Marin. Check out this deck. I'm always amazed that something this complex ever gets off the ground.

If I had known how much fun retirement can be, I'd have done it 20 years earlier!!!!
