Eve of FAA FE Check Ride

Flight_Engineer_Check_Ride1

On the eve of my FAA Flight Engineer check ride, I posed in front of the main test ship, serial #1001, at approximately 5:00 pm. I’m kind of hard to see and the photo is a little fuzzy, but the L-1011 is a really big aircraft.

You can see from my pants that the wind was blowing pretty hard from the west. The sun was just starting to go down in the Palmdale desert.
