We were sitting on the pad at HPN waiting for a gate when a Shuttle America 170 pulls up on the pad to our right. We are sitting there with both engines running vibrating and making a lot of noise like more t-props. I look out my window just trying to kill a little time as we were next in line for a gate. When i look out my window both the guys in the 170 of course were looking down at us and laughing pointing at our a/c. Of course I couldn't hear what they were saying but I can only imagine. I hope most CHQ/SA 170 pilots are like these guys.

Very well could have been laughing WITH us, however I doubt that. It was almost a schatt eating grin.

"Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

"The best laid plans of mice and men sometimes go awry."

"Treat your f/os with respect because they could be your next captain."


Time tested words of wisdom.

A decade ago Shuttle America was nothing more than an idea to run a Dash-8 commuter in New York.

A decade ago the Chautauqua pilots were flying battered Jetstream 31s.

A decade ago Piedmont and Allegheny were the premier regional airlines.

A decade ago we all drooled over the new PSA Dorniers.

A decade ago we all wanted to be in the pool at United.

A decade ago Mesa had a base in Dubois, PA.

A decade ago Valujet was pay-for-training.

A decade ago TWA was hiring.

A decade ago the F28, the F100, and the DC9-10 were all "regional jets" -- and they all paid more than the E170 does today (even if you correct for inflation).

Anyone who laughs at another pilot's situation is a very, very poor student of aviation history.

But for the grace of god, there go we all.

Furloughedagain, excellant post. You know, the older I get, the more I realize that I don't know crap. In life in general and in this dumb industry in specific.

You know what is even funnier, I make the same amount of money flying a turboprop that these guys make flying their E-170! From my window the sky looks the same as their view.......

I actually enjoy flying rather than pushing a bunch of buttons. What about you?

Or maybe they were laughing about something else entirely unrelated to the vibrating turboprop next to them... This thread sounds like a bit o' flame, but what the heck do I know? :)

How did you see both of them at the same time? Was the F/O sitting on the captain's lap and getting a lesson with the tiller? Maybe they weren't laughing at you guys, they were just having a good time with each other.....heh heh heh. See, next time you are in that situation, you can laugh right back.

I'd probably laugh at you too! You probably work for Colgan or Commutair...flying that joke of an "airliner" the 1900. I can't believe how many people think thst Turboprops are good experience. They are a dying fleet. Come get some time in a real airplane. I bet a glass cockpit would kick your arse.

Those guys in the 170, now thats a real airplane. I was hoping we'd get those here, but scope strikes again! :rolleyes:

Denny,

I've been reading a few of your posts today. I'm going to assume that you are the latest incarnation of the Guat or Guppykiller.

That has to be it. Nobody can be as big a knucklehead as you appear to be.

Maybe they were laughing because they knew you couldn't tell from your lower vantage point that neither of them had any pants on.
