Here’s the thing about working the nightshift in any job. You miss out on a lot of different things in life. Doesn’t matter what it is odds are you’ll need to take a day off to do it if it falls in the evening and it’s a once in a blue moon kind of deal. In my life I usually miss out on things do to work in variations of actually working, covering for someone else, or being skipped over “cause night guy” so it was a great feeling being given the chance to go on the media flights for the Boeing B-17 Almuminum Overcast that’s here over this weekend.
I’ve never even flown in a plane so that on top of everything made it special but it’s also just a lot of fun and a great experience that I’d never want to trade. It’s a lot of fun and if you can do it well do it. Just be aware it’s not exactly a cheap flight.
