Hi Randy

Back in Minnesota tomorrow evening for 16 days.

I have no doubt that age 65 will be law in the next 1-5 years in the USA. Do you have any other opinion?

Lot's of things will change in the next 20-60 years in aviation. The number of passengers if you include the complete world statistics will be hard to handle.

Meanwhile let's hope that our safety record can continue or be even better.

Hmmm, time will tell.

Hope to be at BP next Saturday.

Regards,

Dus

Scott,

OK, got it now. When you said "corporate depts" I didn't make the connection and was thinking the airline corporations. But I'm glad that you confirmed that for 121, the reg insulates them.

Best,

Bob

Dux - re>>Back in Minnesota tomorrow evening for 16 days<<

Ya'meb'be ought'a stay put, WX's been great - until now <g>.

>>I have no doubt that age 65 will be law in the next 1-5 years in the USA. Do you have any other opinion?<<

Nope, concur.

>>The number of passengers if you include the complete world statistics will be hard to handle<<

Already are, scares me.

>>Meanwhile let's hope that our safety record can continue or be even better<<

All I have to do is read that non-common language screw-up in that FLUF's O2 accident near Greece last year and I'm glad to be "required retired", carrier's (all) future scares me.

>>Hmmm, time will tell<<

Concur!

>>Hope to be at BP next Saturday<<

A l-o-t of guys last Saturday, had to re-arrange the tables.

best, randy
