Planes are collecting dust

Planes are collecting dust, and they don't even want anyone to drive to the airport and clean them up, let alone fly.

If I wear a mask, gloves, a plastic bubble suit, and spray everything down I touch ... can I go fly solo and warm the engine up?   ;D

With precautions ... its time to get us back in the air.

No, it's not.

It's time to stay the course and not push things right back in the wrong direction.

I know, I know .. hence the rant comment. LOL

Surely at some point, they will start slow and ease up so that at least flights could be done, with just one or two people. Hopefully they will not wait until the "all clear" for full meetings. Those engines don't need to sit for a year. Ouch!

You in a hurry to kill someone with your germs, so that you can log some solo time?

Yeah, I'm a bit touchy at the selfishness. Its loose now in my moms locked retirement home, as of this afternoon, and we're pushing past seventeen thousand cases and going on 800 deaths here. Its far worse in some areas.

And you make jokes about logging solo time?

Will we stand down next flu season when even more people die of it, than of COVID?

OK Mods ... Got it off my chest. Lock 'er up if you like.
