Hoopah drives the boat Chief !!
It cracks me up how the pilots fly all over the country all these airports and there is no federal badge to include all airports ,, you guys need an escort to & from the plane to the building by a badged employee , I've done it several times as the shifter , and I must say all the pilots I've encountered were all very nice and friendly people ! God speed to all of you '

I delivered to IAH Houston for a while when I was in package. I had to get a badge that was signed off by an airport employee. I delivered there for a few months only. A year or so later, someone from the airport called feeders and wanted their badge back. I dug it out of my dresser and gave it back. They keep a watch on those ID cards. It allowed me to bypass metal detectors and secure areas. This was back in the late 70's.

Totally off the wall question but have you night flying guys noticed a big increase in UAP's? My Brother who flys for Alaska out of PDX has several videos of the UAP/UFO's in the last month. Not satellites or known aircraft. Altitudes up to 100K' and in groups of 3-4 moving mach 10 range. Several pilots have seen these objects. He's got decades and thousands of flight hrs experience and is just now seeing these things. Several other pilots and Air National Guard have also seen them. If I were more tech savvy I'd post some screen shots from video.

Sorry, but I don’t care anymore.

I haven't seen them personally but have spoken with other pilots who have. Very interesting but probably something earthly in someway.

What do you mean exactly?
I don't think that is a question you can answer. We have different times for next day loads and 2-day loads. Our next day planes leave the night of, but our 2-day planes leave the next morning. I'm sure that varies wildly throughout the country. I doubt you know what you're flying, just the time it needs to depart and arrive.
