I'm supposed to be sitting in a cockpit flipping switches and preparing for a flight right now. Instead I am sitting in the bowels of the airport waiting for my plane.
Picked up an overtime trip today. A 5 1/2 hour turn. Supposed to have left at 8:05AM and be back at 2:05PM. Not going to happen. The inbound plane had a flaps issue departing it's overnight. Fixed now. Running late.
My wife had the day off so she dropped me off. Even though I knew I was delayed before I left the house, I still had to sign in on time.
With this flight I will have flown roughly 23 hours this month. I will be paid for 81 1/2 hours of flight time. Not too shabby.
Next month I got morning airport reserve. Starts tomorrow morning of course. Not looking forward too it.
Here I wait. Hopefully I won't be too late getting back.
