    Off topic The closest thing to being a pilot...

    Hi there,

    As you all know, Breitling is considered a pilot brand. I'm no pilot but what do you think of this?



    Kind regards,

    Cinq

    Exclamation Cinq, STOP THAT!! You are scaring me!! And you are not...

    even wearing protective headgear (flight helmet) or clothing (nomex flight suit) while performing this aerobatic nonsense! I refuse to watch any longer and I will not come visit you in the hospital. Ok, maybe I'll come visit you in the hospital...
    Cheers,

    That is crazzzzzyyy!!! OMG!! You are going to kill yourself!

    On a serious note. I was a army helicopter maitenance test pilot for many years. The truth is that pilots really are not dare devils. Trust me, there is nothing more nerve racking than flying a broken helo. I have done some very risky stuff, especially during rescue missions, but we carefully weigh the risk/reward ratio for every action that we take.

    This spills over to my personal life too. I dirve a BMW motorcycle, and I always wear proctective gear to include an amoured jacket with spine protector. The older I get, the more concerned with safety I become.

    Laughing Affirmative, T.O.T. In fact, the safety concern...

    is often the primary factor to consider when purchasing another watch. A flak jacket becomes an absolute necessity when the wife finds out what you're doing. :-D :-D :-D

    Hehehe, it was less dangerous than it seems. I don't know if anybody noticed the name of the picture (lakejumping.jpg) but that might have cleared things up a bit.

    The landing was in water (although quite smelly), that's why I was so scarecely dressed :-D

    More pictures of this event with colleagues can be found here

    Kind regards,

    Cinq

    Ps: to assure you: when I am mountainbiking, I always wear a helmet and gloves. When I drive a car, I also always wear the seatbelts. It doesn't even feel good NOT to wear them!
