Good Luck Mr. Jetplane

Today is Mr. Jetplane's last day in class in Texas (hopefully). His class has to complete this huge brief which is what I like to call "Mock World Domination". I actually don't really have any idea what the brief is about, its classified, but I do know that it coordinating all sorts of aircraft and various other things.

Its a big deal, and Mr. Jetplane was named Mission Commander over the entire thing. If you know Mr. Jetplane, and some of you out there do, you know that while he is very smart and very capable, he prefers to fly under the radar (pun intended) and do as little work as possible while still getting high marks. Its his MO, so he was livid when he got named the Mission Commander over the entire project. He has lived at the squadron the past few days and was there from 7:45am until 10:15pm last night. He didn't leave once. You see, they study in a vault and can't take any of the information outside it. Needless to say he's stressed.

He expects a lot out of his classmates and was extremely upset that a lot of them didn't know what they were doing and he had to do all their work over last night.

So please send some good luck his way. If they don't pass this brief, they have to repeat it tomorrow.

** Update** He arrived at the squadron at 7:45am and there were cop cars all around. He thought they were there because he was talking to me on his cell phone (speaker, but you're not allowed to be speaking on cell phones on base). They weren't. There was a gas leak or something at the squadron so they can't get in. They hadn't informed the executive officers yet. Mr. Jetplane called his flight commander to let him know and now they are all off to breakfast.

I asked him if they'll practice together. The answer. "Uh No, we can't its all classified, we can't talk about."

Hopefully, they can get back in and prepare for the brief at 10am.

Good Luck Sweetie...

Happy St. Patty's Day, hopefully the luck of the Irish will be on your side.

Could this push back when he's supposed to be home?

He will do just great! Good luck Mr.J!

Our husbands would be BFF. His MO is Mr. Newlywed's MO.

I hope it all goes well for him. Sounds stressful! Will this change his arrival at home date?

Oh, I hope he's able to get in the building so he's get back to you on time!

The whole secrets, secrets thing was a new experience for me when Nick was in Texas for his first UAS/UAV training. I'd ask what he did that day and he'd say, "I can't tell you." Awesome. What the heck to talk about then?
