Field Trip - again

Another field trip today - this time we went to the control tower at Merrill Field (the airport at which the school is located) instead of a radar center.  These guys definitely have the coolest job in the world.  We got to go up in small groups to the tower cab and watch and listen to the controllers directing the planes.  It wasn't a particularly busy day, so they were pretty talkative and told us all about their job.  I can't wait to get started.  (of course, the whole college experience is a blast, too, so I'm not in that much of a hurry...)

Merrill Tower

A couple planes at the airport are so weighed down with the snow on their elevators that they are sitting on their tails instead of their wheels.  Gives new meaning to the word "taildragger"...
