Reverse that reverse

With the mess the whole thing was in we decided to publicise the affair.
We hit Facebook and after only two days we had almost 200 followers.
Now maybe it was a coincidence but the shippers now wanted to meet.
I couldn’t face them but Vicki went in with moral support from Greg and she managed to explain the mistakes the shipper had made and persuaded them to come to the party and honour their original price quote.
They would lose money but I think they are getting off lightly.
So after reversing a few cancellations and managing to get the FAA to reopen the file we are now back on.

Tomorrow Vicki and I head off to Chino to take delivery of the container at Chino airport.
Hopefully it has travelled well and I will begin reassembly on Thursday/Friday.
It will give me the weekend also although I suspect that people will want to talk so there is a risk that the weekend may slow things down. It’s why I didn’t include the weekend in the original plan. Oh well, we will see.
Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, I made the papers!

I live in New Zealand with my lovely wife Vicki along with our animals on a block of land in Helensville. Back in 1994 I had this crazy idea to build a plane. Since then its been a huge part of my life. My day job has varied over the years. I started out as a computer engineer and now I'm an airline pilot. You would think that would tire me of flying but airline flying isn't really flying. The small planes are fun and make me remember why I started flying in the first place. This blog is a demonstration of some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head from time to time. The way I see it, life is too short to not give these wild ideas a go. I don't mind if people think I'm crazy. I probably am.
