Greetings,
[RTF inserts GIF having nothing to do with the topic but causes uncontrolled laughter from the people who actually understand it's meaning....]


And I think it's been discussed before, it's thread creep not topic drift....

There are plenty of threads that would be of no interest to me if not for the possibility of drift.

It's called Flying Bridge.

Which leads someone to talk about flying and airplanes.

Yes, but FAA regs mandate that I can't call it a flying bridge due to people getting confused on the radio and ais whether I'm a plane or boat. Given you have an ais which everybody should have.
Plus bridge tenders And the department of transportation would get confused too.

I once took what the airlines officially classify as a "trip to nowhere." Boarded in NC for NYC for a meeting. Snow kept us from landing there, ended up in Buffalo. Flew to Chicago and back home to NC. That's as close to the "bridge to nowhere" as I can come.
