David's Daughter

By the unanimous and gracious decision of my readers, the winner of last week's baseball ticket giveaway is David's daughter. I will send David the gift card code and the website link, and I assume the young lady can go from there to choose the exact nature of her prize. I hope she'll get back to us to say what game she saw, and how it went. If she likes to write, she could even do a guest blog entry on the subject.

Also let it be known that henceforth Callsign Echo bears the official title of Posterperson for Readers of Aviatrix's Blog. I'm not sure what her duties and privileges as such are, but I'm sure she'll tell you if you ask her.

Further to the topic of readers and titles, let me introduce the title of a reader's new blog. A few posts ago we were talking about the logistics of turning around a B767 between flights and Dispatcher mused about having plenty of tales to tell. I offered to host some on my blog, but my services won't be needed. You can go to Dispatcher's Diaries and read them there. It's an interesting new angle for the aviation blogosphere.

On behalf of my daughter, thanks to everyone (especially Aviatrix). She's planning to use the gift card towards Red Sox home tickets next spring, and we'll let you know more details as soon as tickets go on sale in the new year. Tonight, she plans to stay up until 1 am (Eastern Time) to watch the first Bosox post-season game.

I'd like to thank the Academy, my fans, and all the little people who made this possible. I promise I'll discharge my duties (once we get around to figuring out what those are) as Poster of... Reader... post... aviatrix...

Posterperson something or other.

And congrats kiddo, enjoy the game!

Thanks for pointing me to Dispatcher's Diaries!

I really enjoy that new blog since I always like to see as many sides of one thing as I can and that blog adds one more nice view into the world of flying, next to p-i-l-o-t-s, flight attendants, controllers and geeks.
