If you need a dozen suggestions, ideas and, of course, opinions, then get at least five pilots together in a ten-foot circle. I love listening to and hearing from all those that don’t own an airplane at the moment, maybe never have or never will, but they are the resident experts on everything that includes an aviation term.
In all fairness, there are times when I hear something that actually makes sense and is a good alternative.
Here’s one I especially liked. First the topic: Redoing the panel on an antique, or an aircraft of historical value, to original status requiring the spending of dollars consisting of a lot of zeros.
Here was my surprise… the comment most often heard was, “I didn’t think of that!”
Fortunately that isn’t a capital offense, but it can be punishing if you choose to kick yourself in the bottom, or top, for not thinking of that. (Please don’t ask me what that is.)
