Pushing in the fog

Every one of us who has ever helped pushing a bigger aircraft up a slight hill for a longer distance with a few people will have noticed that there is always that one guy who more or less just “holds on to the aircraft” instead of putting his back into it. I sincerely hope that none of you are “that guy”.

It actually was invented during our last Skiing trip and is one of our personal favorites because it’s so relate-able even if you’re not in aviation. The photo shows us either seconds before or after we invented the strip. It’s a great example to show you how we come up with our ideas, just in case you might have imagined us in white lab coats inside some sort of comic laboratory …

    Somehow I think Chuck IS “that guy” and Julio knows better than to get suckered into pushing the plane with Chuck’s “help” !
