    It's the "milk truck". Our pilots can request it to go from the plane to the building to stay out of the rain/weather. There are a couple of bench seats in the back. It's a comfortable ride.

    Where I am at, only certain Package Cars are allowed in "Restricted Areas" at the airport. The driver has a special photo ID and Security checks the License Tags. We don't have anything on the roof, although I have seen a Package Car painted up from the '96 Olympics with a NDA Letter on top and we also have one with a Panda on it when UPS delivered one to the Atlanta Zoo.

    Try flying an airplane for more than an hour, it's not an easy job.

    "Try flying an airplane for more than an hour, it's not an easy job."

    Wrong. The hard part is getting there. (Training, flight time, working your way up).

    Flying the airplane is an easy job.
