For the third time in a row I have weathered the displacement storm.
The final bid came out today (due out yesterday). Just like on the preliminary result I am staying put. This is only due to one person above me choosing to move to a different base on the same aircraft while another pilot is moving into my base on my current aircraft creating a one for one swap. No pilots displaced into my current status.
I really thought the third time was the charm. My wife and I discussed the real possibility that I would be come a commuter. Thankfully it didn't happen. I do feel bad for all those who will be forced to now commute across the country. It could just have easily been me.
That's all for now. I am spending the day trying to install Mac OS on my new netbook. So far...not going very well.
