Unfortunately, I don't have time to re-create what turned out to be a pretty good post right now, as I'm heading back to St. Louis yet again, this time for the last time for a while. I'm doing two weeks of simulator sessions, the checkride, and I'll have a shiny new EMB-145 type rating on September 14th!
In the meantime, here are some pictures I had in the original post:
|The unusual 30-degree bend in the Chain of Rocks Bridge over the Mississippi.|
|View of downtown from the bridge. The Gateway Arch is barely visible at center left, in the notch in the trees.|
|Southwest 737 framed in the girders.|
|These guys started in Montreal and were doing the ride all the way from there to California via Route 66!|
I will redo the rest of this post when I get back and let you all know when it's up. Until then, blue skies!
