I like airplanes. I have for a long time. Fortunately, the company I work for owns a couple. I am free to walk out into the hangar and gaze at them all I want but I can’t touch. No touchee!

Until today.

Today, we had to run a test and I volunteered to go sit in the airplane and help out with it. Somebody had to since nobody else knows how to run the sensor that we designed. The plane is not configured to carry passengers and so it was kind of basic inside but that made it all the more interesting to me. We sat there and ran our test with the (really loud) engines on and then came home. It was pretty cold today but the airplane interior was pretty tolerable even with me sitting on the metal floor.

Fun stuff.
