I was watching some coverage of the RNC and in McCain's bio montage it said that he had a son who is an airline pilot? Deets?

Son from his first wife Carol. He lives in Virginia Beach.

Nice knowing you gotta play the GOP show knowing your Dad is going to actively screw you and your fellow airline pilots....

I don't care if he's going to take us to another World War, McCain's wife is hot and she has a pilot's license.

Apparently he's an F/O on the 777 out of NY; at least that's what they're saying on the APA board.
I have had him on my JS at least half a dozen times. Nice guy.

Sorry, no inside info from me. I had the class not to hammer him with questions about his old man. He probably gets too much crap about that as it is.

At first glance dude, get a good look. I do agree, from a distance, fit and everything. But until you get her gear off, that is another story.

Well said, Neecy. I support our union as much as the next guy, but if Obama gets elected oil will go to $200/barrel and there wont be any pilot jobs for unions to fight over.

McCain/Palin 08....or is it Palin/McCain 08 :)

I think O'Bama is a nice guy, smart, honest, capable, the kind of guy that you'd like as a neighbor or a coworker. But President of the United States? That's above his pay grade.
