So, 10 years after being "engaged" to a jet, I am now married to one, and my two wives and I have settled into this new relationship (yes, I'm a bigamist of sorts). It took a lot of effort, but my flying skills have been greatly expanded. Here's the bottom line. Up at FL 410, while flying along at a nice Mach number with incredible quiet and smoothness all around, I look down at the airliners below and say to myself, "It just doesn't get any better than this!" I like my new wife!
