Clunky buddy, I know you guys speak this funny English and spell stuff incorrectly  :whistle:, but I am pretty sure you want the rubber side down.  When I end up with rubber side up, bad things happened....   :172:  :22:   :33:

Looks like a Q400.  I have racked up a lot of miles on those, as one of my projects in the CA central valley was serviced by a small regional airport, but there was a direct flight on from PDX on one of those.  I have seen these planes land in conditions that basically paralyzed everything else.  And if you sit in the front of the cabin, you don't have to worry about the props coming loose...   :007:

I have flown on enough of these as well.
I think I would prefer to be a bit further back so that when one does pop off and slice the cabin in half at least I would be with the wings rather than in the pointy bit heading rapidly towards the ground.
Admittedly in this scenario there is probably no good ending.

Welcome to the US of A!    :031:

You obviously need that sleep, because I doubt you flew on a Boeing A319....    :whistle:

 He's  a Guru, Gustavo, not a mere Hardcore  :008: .  No doubt if he wants a Boeing A319 he just rubs his magic lamp.

 Good to know that you are in the Zone, Richard. Let the Good times Roll. Or should that be Let the Tiger Growl?

An old 747 from London to Denver which was more cramped than the A319 😕
Trying to sleep but not having too much luck @ 04:00 😳

I am guessing you flew BA?
Why would you fly with those bunch of pretentious tossers who are stuck in the 50s when there are so many better options.

I doubt even Richard could get Boeing to make a A series plane.
Unless he sits there eating all their ice cream and refusing to leave.

Having a lovely relaxing day at the Queen Anne B&B opposite Benidicts Fountain Park in Denver. It's a great little B&B where you feel like you are home from home. 😎

And the food is all homemade inc. their own ice-cream 😁
