Great Photo – Dave Bronson is the man! Anchorage needs an honest, pragmatic mayor at the helm!
Dave remembers me from when I worked the NWA 747 freighters he piloted. He told me he also had trouble not hitting his head on the main deck’s ceiling as we both had to climb the ladder to get up to the cockpit.
I told him I went up it too fast twice, and should have learned the first time. He said it happened to him too, and that the opening wasn’t designed for people over 6 feet.
Our 747F-100s were designed in the ’60s.
