      Most of these flights are scheduled well in advance, and we have a mix of hard lines of flying and reserve in our bid packs. For example, I've been doing all DHL flying the past couple months, and...

      +1. I've flown with lots of former military pilots. Some excellent sticks, some horrific.

      A good time, but nothing near disaster. These things are plenty overpowered for this scenario. I once flew a 767-200ER that, when light, clocked from brake release to FL320 in 9 minutes. :laugh:

      4,800 Nautical Miles

      Oh man, I love my light twin...unfortunately I haven't flown a 757 since 2011 though, and Atlas doesn't have any. Just glad I got to check that box!

      Great thread by the way; the funniest part...

      70,000#? Heck, that's not even the fuel load required to do that flight. :D

      Just kidding! Sounds like fun.

      Video: 747-400 Cargo Crash in Afghanistan

      About 3 months! Just finished IOE, actually. Great step up in all respects from Omni. Atlas basically poached myself and a number of others with prior 767 experience.

      Video: 747-400 Cargo Crash in Afghanistan

      Very scary scenario... I'm now flying freight for Atlas, though on the 767 rather than the 747. Load shift is one of the "keep you up at night" situations along with lithium battery fires.

      RIP....

      Greg, you call that a leg? Did this one westbound from Greece to Dallas a couple years ago. Blocked 14.0 with that sweet, sweet winter headwind. Topped that sucker off. :laugh:

      Busted. I was thinking about our non-FADEC jets. ;)

      We have 7 767s, 2 of which are non-FADEC. Also, our RB211 757 is non-FADEC. Definitely prefer the FADEC from a pilot's perspective.

      Very true. That's why we train to commit to a go around. Once you hit the "go" switches, you're taking it back in the air, even if you touch down momentarily.

      You absolutely can (and should) go around after that kind of bounce. It'll touch back down as the motors spool, but that's not a big deal; you'll avoid the nose slam, which is undoubtedly what caused...

      This has happened a number of times to the 767-300; as far as I know, most have returned to service.
