Just some
of today's
oddities
found at
FL 300


Just about the time you thought you've seen all the crazy sites out there on the web, along comes Av8rdan with a few that ought to provide a few pristine moments of enjoyment.

I found these while surfing around thirtythousandfeet.com, one of my favorite aviation directories. A require stop at FL 300 is their new sites page, listing the freshest of their content.

Here are a few doozies from yesterday, found in their “other” category...

Do you often find yourself in Transylvania with too much time on your hands? Then maybe you need to take a helicopter ride over Dracula's Castle:
Rent a helicopter when you are in Brasov, or near by, will prove to be a fantastic opportunity to see the splendour and beauty of Bran Castle, also called Dracula Castle, the old Rasnov Citadel and the picturesque Brasov city from a bird's eye view.
Or maybe you are really lonely and all the girls at the bar slap you when you ask them if they want to go out to the airport and look at your pitot tube. If that's the case, you need this site:
Love Air is a dating and friendship service designed for air crew, cabin crew, airline staff, private pilots, military pilots, flight operations staff, ATC, aircraft & aerospace engineers, general aviation staff and all supporting services. Love Air is not only about romance and flirtation, but also friendship. Many of our members use this site to meet up to fly or just to socialise. Register here to share your cabin crew pics, to talk about cabin crew jobs, and to discuss any aspect of airline life and general aviation.
And if you want to sound like a Rhodes Scholar, you can drop a few of these classic aviation quotes from Skygod.com on the guys down at the coffee shop the next time you are waiting for the scud to lift:
"That is the trouble with flying: We always have to return to airports. Think of how much fun flying would be if we didn't have to return to airports." – Henry Minizburg

"It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill." – Wilbur Wright
Or last, and definitely least, when you have searched and read every other aviation website out there on any of the Internets, you can still go to the Air Sickness Bag Virtual Museum. From their site:
Air Sickness Bags are art! One can tell a lot about an airline's image from their Air Sickness Bags. Some barf bags are no more than a baggie with a twist tie, while other sickbags could win international design competitions. Are they art? You decide.
Uuugggrrrhhh.
