    Disagree with 1). Should be "Sky above you"

    Just a thought for all you students (as well as the rest
    of us):

    I saw a poster years ago (while I was a Civil Air Patrol
    cadet) that showed a new angel ascending to heaven
    and a crashed airplane far below. He was asking the
    question, "Can you name the three most useless things
    to a pilot? To save my life, I couldn't."

    The answer, at the bottom of the poster, was:
    1) Altitude below you.
    2) Runway behind you.
    3) Fuel in a fuel truck.

    I'm still involved with Civil Air Patrol (alas, not as a cadet
    anymore). If any one has any other similar diddies, I
    would love to hear about them. I can then share them
    with the cadets in my unit.
