You guys don't represent your company well at all. I would be embarassed if I was on this board and worked for your company. You guys need to lighten up and try not to be so antagonistic. Rise above this.

Wait a minute...I thought the only reason any of us got hired at FDX was because of all our friends.

Great Idea!!!!

How bout we use the proceeds of the pool to buy Flightinfo.com? Then we would have our own place to talk about that stuff that only us FedEx CARGO guys are interested in. Suggested topics could be stuff like:

Civilians....why we scoff at them cause we live in our own little world. (aka...don´t they have any stories about Thailand or the PI to tell?)

The ethics of sponsoring someone you have known for less than 13 years

Who can still repeat the spin recovery procedure for the T-37?

How to get the sweat stains out of your wheel cap in time for informational picketing.....and why I suddenly don´t feel like a pinko commie labor socialist

NVG´s and the HUD.....when is it too dark to use both....and by the way....did you know they are putting them on FedEx AIRCRAFT

How to get the Bar Girl in the PI to pick up your tab.

Ex-Military Fraternity and the Illuminati.....do you need to belong to both since they are generally composed of the same membership.

(Civilian Idol) Vote on which civilian we will honor by letting them join our club.

And Finally! Where the hell is Quijibo these days_

Awesome. I think it was something like "Idle, nuetral, aft...." and last time I saw Quijibo he was "on the loose!"

We military folks have tons of friends....unfortunately many have died in the past 4 years. So there is our excuse.

Expect an announcement soon from Boeing/FedEx for pre-owned B757's from GE with the "NEW" blended-wingtips that will reduce wake turbulance criteria.

OK, sandman....

is this a real "real" rumor, or just one of those to amuse ourselves on flightinfo?

I think people are going to be surprised that the next bid isn't really going to be that big compared to the 2001 monster.

I'm saying 190 new captains TOTAL and will be in late August, the 22nd.

You heard it here first, ante up!

How many guys are in the pool right now? Just talked to a senior pilot in the training dept. and he told me 150 wide body Capts alone coming out in August. Sounds good to me!
