My wife and I will be enjoying my last retirement tomorrow by leaving for 6 week around the world vacation heading east finishing up Australia and Hawaii in mid October.

For my friends, it's be fun flying and chatting. For my foe's, don't take it personal. If i truly offended you.....well fck off cause im retired now....haha....We're all in this together and we need some release.

Good luck all.

Why quitting so early? When my dad was told he had to retire at the age of 70, he told them "You can't MAKE me retire". Well, they did make him, but he found another flying job. He was still 135 PIC qualified when he passed away. There ARE old, bold pilots. Best of luck to you, and congrats on a successful flying career.

Hey man, enjoy the retirement. Sounds like a great trip.

Try not to tell all the different airline pilots on this trip how to do their job. Just sit back and enjoy the drinks. ;)

Good luck!

Have a great trip broke! When you get to Sydney take your wife for a walk down to the Opera House and find a cafe by the harbor. Order a plate of Sydney Rock oysters washed down with a cold "VB" and look over at your lovely wife and reflect on how lucky you've been. Like most pilots wife's I'm sure she has earned this retirement just as much as you have!


Sydney harbor is one of my favourite spots in the world, I'm envious!

If you get the chance go and see Broome on Western Australia's North West coast. Most beautiful beach in the world (cable beach) and enjoy a bloody mary at the sunset bar on the beach. Enjoy :)

Congratulations and good luck!
