Some of you loyal readers may not be aware, but in addition to all things aviation, I am also a big-time cyclist, as well. Thus, it is indeed a rare occasion when one can come across cool corporate cycling jerseys. Even rarer still are aviation cycling jerseys. That being the case, when my contact at Boeing offered up these two beauties, well, how could I refuse? I mean, c’mon, it is the 787 Dreamliner, and the new 737 MAX, for cryin’ out loud! With the 787 just entering service, and the 737 MAX is still on the drawing board, to not only to see, but to receive these jerseys, was indeed a Christmas treat.

With the Holiday Season in full-swing I admit to not riding as much as I would have liked, which kinda’ bugs me. However, Christmas is a time of year quite a bit busier than others, so I am sure this a common theme among many a rider right now. I mean, there are parties to go to, food and drinks galore, plus short daylight hours, so squeezing in a ride can be a little more difficult than usual. Well, new jerseys makes the incentive to get on out and ride that much greater.

On the path leading up to Christmas and the New Year, I have indeed been blessed with good friends and now some killer riding apparel, too.
I feel rich.

It was also the title of a killer Star Trek episode in 1968.

From The "Well, Isn't This Interesting" Department - Cessna Citation Hits Deer On Runway. Plane Destroyed.
Apparently the Citation II (registration N6763L, operated by United States Customs and Border Patrol) struck the deer upon touchdown, the left fuel tank burst, and lots of happy, volatile Jet-A went directly into the #1 intake. The light show must have been amazing. The crew escaped unhurt.
There was no mention of the condition of the deer, or whether it was an American Deer, or a member of a Cartel.
