Astral Aviation (Air Atlanta Icelandic) Boeing 747-400F, TF-AMU todays third freighter has arrived from Cairo it will depart to Liege
If I'd ever had the ability to become an airline pilot I think I might have preferred flying cargo aircraft. None of the annoying passengers to worry about. A bus driver acquaintance (omnibus that is, not Airbus) said that bus driving is all right if it wasn't for the blank blank passengers. Not that airline pilots come into face to face contact with passengers in the way that bus drivers do.

I've been watching DSA's performance from afar in this crisis and they are certainly coming up trumps with transporting cargo.

I did as a flight engineer and after Dan-Air was gobbled up by British Airways I joined European Air Transport in Brussels ,which is the operating arm of DHL, as I had a Boeing 727 rating.
Best move I ever made and happily retired at 62 having watched several colleagues go through the passenger airline problems that seem to haunt the industry.
Not much glamour and more night flights but well organized and stable rosters which makes the difference.

I presume Rob that you meant turning at the end of the runway. I'd love to see a tug helping it to rotate off the runway!
