CA Pratt,

I was thinking of you only last week. Hadn't heard from you in a long time. Glad to see you post here. Looks like you may have won the prize!!

Been a long time since I visited your office every month for my monitoring program. Nearly 30 years now! Life is good. Trust that all is well with you.

Good morning from France !
RE Quiz !!!! Bravo to Buck !
TW810 A/C N602TW , Feb2/1985, Rule 60min, Flt time 6H32
For the first flt TW810 N602TW feb 01/1985 the 60 minutes rule required use of enroute alternates in Greenland and Northern Canada then 75min, 120min approved by FAA. (now 180min AF B777 use 207min Lax to Tahiti)

I went looking for N602TW and see that it has been scrapped. But it appears that there are still a few of TW's -200's still flying.

I did see one of them in MIA last year.
