Budget cuts. We had to suspend the overflights of your house. We are using bi-weekly satellite imagery now.

Presidential visit. Probably No Fly'd the whole of Alaska.

I'm surprised pilots in alaska know what a TFR is.

Wind shift.  Coming in opposite runway.

Yeah, I guess a lot of downtown Anchorage is shut off as well for traffic. People are kinda mad. Yesterday through the next few days is the busiest flying days up here usually every year because Moose season just opened. Lot of people not gonna get their meat for the freezer this year so he can be on the Reality TV show with Grylls.

There weren't any planes flying anywhere ... it was eerie.

Yep, I was in at moose camp, called the wife from up on the ridge, of course she was freaking out, got her calmed down, had her get together some supplies and guns and ammo and put it all in the crawlspace of our house along with clothes, bags and camping gear..told her if anything local happened just take the kids down there and don't come out till I got there... so  I packed camp, loaded the buggies and drove the 90 miles back out to the road, jumped in my pickup and hauled ass to town... came back 3 days later and went back in...but it was weird to be out hunting and never see/hear a plane...finally did the last few days of season.....

Any good outfitter will be prepared for a week or so extra in camp up here. Presidents come, weather turns bad, planes break... Any number of reasons.

Shit, here I sit in Incheon waiting on my plane out of Anchorage. I got delayed about 15 hours and it never occured to me it was FBHO. Dammit.

He is costing me money, again. I lost my tail end trip at the end of my pattern, and 24 hour layover in Shanghai.



TL:dr……………………FBHO

Guy who owned the company I worked for was in this position.  They had to ration food and water.  Resupply plane didn't show for quite awhile, and had no com's to outside world.

Whats up is that all the charter flight operations are losing big money due to Emperor Zero being in town! Fucking bullshit!

I am a private pilot and remember how strange with nothing flying. Me and wife stood outside and all was quiet. I'm getting old and a first for me. Spooky.
