Going North to Alaska

Got my plane ticket for my trip to Alaska today.  I'll be flying on a Boeing 757.  For those of you not familiar with the different types of airplanes, this is what it looks like.

These planes are freaking awesome.  Unless you are right behind it in the traffic pattern.  Then you hate it with a passion.  It's notorious for creating huge wingtip vorticies which means lots and lots of wake turbulence.  No good.  But I want to fly one.

More in the news.  I've started flight training.  I'm up to 8.7 hours now.  It's a lot of fun and I can't wait till I get my private pilot certificate.  If you want to go flying, just let me know and I'll take you.
