......... you make such a good point; I can not finish reading Newsweek or the NY Times in the morning anymore ........... it puts my head in the worst space for the day.

Keep reading Newsweek or the NY Times in the morning....

Having facts is important ..too many get "preference news"

Support the Fourth Estate and journalism or it could lead to being in the worst space under a dictator

Young Ruben got his early turbine time with us at Grand Canyon Airlines, Las Vegas. He's a fine aviator and a fine dude too!

Great story and great comparative photos. Even Doug can't complain about the duplication of pictures.

Awesome story! Another thing I noticed was the first picture was also taken in a 737 as well.
