Ms. Nina’s Flight to Florida

December 01, 2023: SWA3155 BWI-SRQ

It’s been a hot minute since Ms. Nina took a commercial flight. This time, a bit more educated on air travel. She brought with her both an iPad with Foreflight so she can navigate all the way to Florida and her favorite book: Where Do Jet Planes Sleep at Night.

I still couldn’t get her to take a peek in the cockpit.

Ms. Nina’s Aviation Adventures in Atlanta

Ms. Nina had quite the aviation adventure during a family trip to Atlanta for Passover this year. She flew on the Airbus A320 series on Spirit Airlines between BWI and ATL. While in Atlanta, she visited Peachtree Dekalb Airport (PDK) twice for lunch and after-dinner drinks at the 57th Fighter Group Restaurant, where she got to watch airplanes takeoff and land right next to the runway.

Another Two Boeing B737 Flights

By now, Ms. Nina is almost five years old and riding as a passenger on a Boeing B737 is old news. Hopefully soon she will be up front flying this machine. Or maybe move onto the Airbus A320 series.

Ms. Nina Searches for *** ******

December 1, 2022: SWA3391 BWI-SRQ

Ms. Nina knows all about the TERPZ7 departure. She knows that it takes her more or less straight over *** ******. So even in the dark of night, Ms. Nina insisted on looking out the window to try to find *** ****** from 11,000 feet up.

Ms. Nina Is Very Excited for B-737s

November 14, 2022: SWA974 SRQ-BWI

She was just sitting in the chairs waiting for her flight at SRQ, when Ms. Nina heard the sound of two CFMI turbine engines spooling up as the B-737 was taxiing into the gate. She rushed over to the window to see the airplane and try to identify all of the rainbow hearts on it.

Veteran’s Day Weekend Adventure

November 11, 2022: SWA1264 BWI-SRQ

Abba and Nina take a trip to Florida for Veteran’s Day Weekend. She was very excited to fly in a 737, but wanted to know why it wasn’t a 747. Ms. Nina was a great passenger for the entire flight. She found all of the rainbow hearts throughout the airport and the airplane. She was still too scared to go visit the cockpit at the end of the flight.

Ms. Nina’s Flight to the Desert

September 03, 2022: SWA3589 BWI-PHX

It’s been several months since Ms. Nina’s last commercial flight, but that didn’t make her anything less of a great passenger. This time she traveled out to Arizona to visit her father who is stationed out there with the US Army National Guard. Several times in the days leading up to the flight, and even after she arrived, Ms. Nina asked, “Why are we taking the 737? Why aren’t we taking my yellow Cub?” We had to explain to Ms. Nina that it would probably be quicker to drive a car to Arizona than it would to fly the Cub.
