Return to Civilization
That said, the flights were uneventful. No engines fell off, the pilots always remembered to lower the landing gear, and the wings were gremlin-free. What I found interesting was we were always #3 or lower for takeoff immediately after leaving the gate. Previously there had been a lot of hurry up and wait, but not this time. Fewer flights?
My return put me at one point in Bangor International Airport, home of the famous Troop Greeters. They were even assembling to greet a flight when I was there, but alas! Boarding call for my flight came before the troops did. I would have loved to see them in action.
