WOXOF & Where Are We Now?/Lord Love A Nurse/Voyage Of Discovery FlyingTalkers By Geoffrey Arend

    • Aviation

In aviation the letters spoken as a word reporting flying conditions is WOXOF.

"Weather: Overcast, Ceiling Obscured, Visibility Zero in Fog."

Pronounced like it looks: "WOXOF”  when spoken most often gets the same response from everyone, especially pilots:

“You're not getting me up in that.”

Here in COVID-19 2021 as the year progresses and Spring begins, through the fog, there are some questions with everyone working at maximum overdrive, whilst delivering life-saving vaccines worldwide. 

WOXOF-“Where Are We Now?”

Lord Love A Nurse

Karin Krestan stepped  down February 17 taking early retirement as Head of the Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center in Frankfurt.

The lady pioneer of critical air cargo handling, who once served as a nurse’s aide at a hospital in nearby Darmstadt, Germany, joins an unusually large number of transportation professionals that seem to be taking early retirement everywhere across our industry just as demand for top line professionals increases.



Voyage of Discovery

From the mailbag comes a visit to the pioneering flying boat base at Port Washington, New York and a visitor in 1938 that in 2021 is a complete surprise.
