I just saw someone else riding an FZ! It's about time! Waved back and forth. I think it's my neighbor cuz it was a red one near home. I wonder if they're on here? I was riding my silver one on highway 287.

Yep I'm aware! I'm an Approach Controller at KDEN. We also run ask the airports around Denver like KAPA and KBJC. We get one Speedbird a day from Heathrow

You might see me in the summer. I pass through Broomfield on my way to Coal Creek Canyon all the time. Actually worked in Broomfield for many years just not lately. Liquid Graphite incidentally. See you on the road.

We come up with funny ones. Like Republic Airlines goes by Brickyard and we call them "Brake Hard" cuz they go slow as hell on final. If you ever are talking to Denver Approach ask for Justin!

Haven't seen any up here. In fact, I rarely see any other type of bike except Harley's.
That's unfortunate. I can't stand Harleys

In the Q400? Those things are gladly on the way out.
Yup the Q's. Those things slow to like 90-100 kts on final. Do you work as a professional pilot?

EDIT: I forgot one of your earlier posts. You fly Mercury? E170s?

That makes sense to me. Hey we were in your airspace yesterday. United flight out of ICT on my home to SBA.

Dropped off our Beechjet in ICT for some wrenching.

Cheers and best forward speed at all times!:cool:
