I survived the flights home. Since we lost an engine to a bird on takeoff, it was an adventure getting home.

I am now in my chair, watching Teletubbies with Jake and the dog. It’s good to be home.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Mmm, bird ingestion! Aborted takeoff or circle back and land?

    both – the bird was ingested at takeoff at about 1000 feet

    Must have been a big one, too.
