Can anybody recommend a chart/guide of the US that shows points of interest (lakes, mtns, etc) to aid in making pax announcements?
A Squared said:OH, just make stuff up, have fun with it. Tell them that those big green circles from center pivot irrigation systems are crop circles, left as messages from aliens. Most of them aren't listening anyway.
Seriousy, Sporty's used to sell road maps of the US with the Jet routes printed on them, though I cna't seem to find them in the latest catalog...is that what you're looking for?
Me: (switching audio panel to P/A) Greetings from the Flight deck, for those of you on the left side of the plane......
Captain: Shut Up! The p/a was disconnected 30 years ago, and the boxes really don't care!
Flight engineer: (Rolls his eyes and unplugs his headset)
