Bombardier CRJ900





I've been asked for some photos of my plane, so here are a few. It's no 747, but it's a pretty sweet ride. A BIG step up from my little four seat piston twin. It can seat up to 90 people, but because of our contract with Northwest, we have them configured to 76 (64 coach and 12 first class). It can fly up to 41,000 feet, 0.83 Mach (547 mph), and 2,104 miles. I like it.

AHHH!!! We're so excited for you and your family. I'm so glad you were able to find something. We're a little jealous but mostly really happy for you. Congratulations. That plane is awsome.

Sweet! I think that is the coolest thing. I couldn't imagine being a pilot of a plane like that (or any plane for that matter). Congrats again!

I JUST flew on this plane 4 times in the last 2 weeks. I even got upgraded to first class once! Maybe you were the pilot (except for probably not because I flew with delta). Maybe I should be a little more frightenend of flying knowing that you're behind the wheel :)

Dude, do you have any idea how much you are making me druel? That is so awesome that you are finally there flying. Sure hope it goes well. When your up to 41,000 feet next time, think of us (you can laugh and feel bad for us too) back here in Sanford!
