How many of you guys get to hang around a commercial aircraft for 4 hours and then get their picture taken in the cockpit? OH, Oh, that would be me:D I volunteer for a local charity here in Milwaukee and we have been doing this event for 10 years where teams of 12 pull a commercial airliner 15 feet in the least amount of time. This year it was a Frontier Airlines E190. Winning team gets round-trip tickets anywhere Frontier flies. Other aircraft I've been able to hang out with have been MD-80s, DC-9's, 757's, 727's and 717's. Oh did I mention that like you guys an aviation nut. Check out the vid from this year's event.

I'd love to be able to do that here - but doubt it would get authorized. Wonder if 12 could pull an A380? :)

I'm thinking 20 might do it. The wheels are designed to roll. Once you get it going, it will roll forever. Go for it.

Be real hard to get authorization to do that at a CATX (but I will ask Qantas in the next meeting) :)
