A Happy Memorial Day

To all the veterans and currently serving servicemen - thank you for your service that allows us to keep our freedom!

The rest of the blog is a little slow at the moment - the rainy season seems to have hit Florida and not a lot is going on at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.  I need to try and find some filler posts to do over the next couple of - watch this space....

Sweet dreams are made of this......

Have you ever looked at something, or walked through somewhere, or just stood in the middle of something and said to yourself, "What I would give to _______".  I had that very fortunate experience recently.  I was very lucky to be able to take a tour of a stunning Boeing 737-7BC(BBJ) registered N164RJ - this stunning bird that makes her home (when she is in town) at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.

From the minute you enter the cabin, you know you are in a place of pure pleasure - as someone described her - an apartment in the sky.  All the amenities are there to be able to support that - bathroom with shower, bedroom, satellite access for communications, wireless internet throughout the aircraft, television, full gallery (kitchen), she is able to provide the best to her occupants.  Here are some of the highlights (note - there are some areas I will not photograph out of respect to the owners)..

The office area  that contains the fax machine, the desk, the working area.

The meeting area, combined with dining area, complete with full boardroom table/dining room table.

The living area, relaxation area.

The living area, relaxation area. 

The living area, relaxation area.

Then of course, for the crew, there is the office area, cold and dark at the moment, waiting for her next trip.

And, finally, the means for getting from place to place - part 1 of 2.  

Yes, I would give a whole whole lot to be able to take a trip on such a lovely apartment in the sky, but, as this post is titled, sweet dreams are made of N164RJ, I mean this.....

Some more time spent behind the camera lens....
