Thread. A friend just wrote me this message. Attn: @AmericanAir "I am sitting in an American Airlines flight right now. 1st class completely full. No empty seats. Zero social distancing. However, the rear of plane has hardly any people in it. All wearing masks to get on.../1 Image
2/ "But I see people taking them off now. No food or beverage service, so there should be no reason to take them off. Pilot did make an announcement at beginning of the flight to wear it or get off basically...
3/ "But the flight attendants are doing nothing about the people who are wearing their masks on their chins or off completely. Not a peep." @AmericanAir Please fix! (I want to go see my sick mom in Chicago but I can't fly as long as this goes on!) #flying #OrangeCounty /End

#Flying and #ClimateJustice: a contradiction. ✈️🌍⚖️

To keep the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees, emissions must be reduced to 2.5 tonnes CO2eq per person per year by 2030.

One long-haul flight alone can exceed this budget – per person! Image
Air traffic is a major obstacle to climate justice. While it may seem normal for Western Europeans or Americans to fly, this "normality" has only existed for the last few decades and is still rare worldwide. Only about 10% to 20% of the global population have ever taken a flight.
But everyone suffers from the consequences of flying and the climate crisis, especially those in countries of the global south.
And not all flights are equally necessary. Particularly, privileged people should question their choices take sustainable ones and call for change.

More airplane photos!

Last fall I went flying with my good friend Tony in a Champ. True low and slow fun flying at sunset.

One of those perfect, smooth as glass, quiet evening flights. #aviation #avgeek #flying #champ #tailwheel #flight #airplane
This flight is worth a thread.

Tony was always there to help me build my Sonex. This day was the first time I took him up in it. We started out in the Sonex.

He’s now building an RV and I love stopping by to help.
So then we hopped in the Champ. Now, I love flying my Sonex....but there is something about puttering along at 1500’ AGL in a Champ that cant be beat. We headed southwest from Clow towards Newark, IL.

There’s a grass strip there - Cushing Field.

If govt goes ahead with this idea of only one passenger per row in early days of flights restart, low cost airlines will pretty much have an unwanted business class of sorts. @IndiGo6E @flyspicejet @goairlinesindia @AirAsiaIndian. #new #pangs. #just #imagining. Image
And that's how you will board your buses for flights. Patience will be a virtue @flyspicejet.
And the steps... #coronavirus #flying
