    Check this out guys:

    It's a blog from a real life 757 pilot. His latest describes the difference in flying (twirling knobs) an Airbus to a DC-9 / 727..... BSW should really appreciate this. Enjoy.

    Regards,
    Henry

    Thanks for posting that. I do appreciate it. I wish more folks did. I don't wish to start a debate over the merits of actually flying the aircraft, but I just can't fathom why anyone would rather turn knobs and work a keypad when the flying part of this hobby is the reason why we do this. Not the knob turning and punching commands in a keypad.

    Why sit back and watch when you can actually fly the thing?
