Just Another Day At The Office

Friday I got to experience something really neat. Parker had a solo flight where he was going to be landing and taking off on the same runway. His instructor told him to bring his wife so I could take pictures and get the chance to see him fly. I had never seen Parker fly before in person, so yall, I was pumped!

His instructor was so nice to me. I was trying not to be the giddy clueless wife, but I am fairly confident that's how it came off. I was being such a groupie. Regardless, he answered all of my questions, talked to me about what was going on as it was happening, and even let me talk to Parker on the radio. I said "Charlie", "Roger ball", and "Wave off, wave off, foul deck". I have absolutely no idea what any of that meant. At all.  I loved talking into the radio knowing Parker was listening up in the sky somewhere though.  I know he giggled when he heard my voice.






Parker's Thoughts:
For anyone who was wondering, we were doing Field Carrier Landing Practice. We were developing our skills for landing on the boat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw4dZ2bJnGI ... It was pretty awesome to have Chelsea out in the LSO shack and she sounded awesome (and adorable) on the radio!

For Parker it was just another day at the office, but for me it was the coolest experience ever! I loved it!

On another note, wishing the happiest of birthdays to my favorite sister in law! Love you B!

That is SO cool! Ryan flies UAVs, and I remember seeing him do so the first (and only) time was probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen :)

Katie said...

How fun!! You got some really nice pictures, too! I'm sure Parker was thrilled to hear your voice over the radio :)

That is awesome! I can't imagine how excited you were. John has promised to take me on a "field trip" to one of the C17 planes he works on, but that isn't nearly as cool as seeing your husband fly in person!

That is SO awesome!!! I actually know what "roger ball" and "wave off, wave off, foul deck" means... I'm glad to say all that time I've spent watching JAG was educational! ;)

I would be so excited to see Andrew fly a plane like that! He's only flying single engine aircraft's at the moment. I love how you two support each other. :)

I think I am just emotional today but for some reason this made me cry. So sweet and I am glad you were able to witness what your sweet hubby does. It truly takes skill.

Stephanie said...

Haha that is so fun! I would do the same thing with the radio. Tom and I talk in made up radio talk all the time, which usually ends up sounding like we are beat boxing. Love it!

That is so awesome that you got to see him take off and land! That's also so neat that you got to talk on the radio!

I get to film planes taking off and landing on a semi-regular basis for my job, but that first time out there so close....man it's something else for sure. I bet it's even better when you're married to the pilot!
