I hear we got one of Boeing's top test pilots. I wish I got his name, but the crew was saying that he's the only one who loves getting close to mountains. Not too risky. I hear even at the closest point we were a mile or two away from the mountain, but when you're next to a 14,500 foot high mountain that seems really close. The only way to get closer would be to climb it.
I've got news for you, Robert. You need to go for a glider ride in the mountains. Instead of being a mile away, you can be flying just off the peak at 100 miles per hour with no engine noise at all. You'll never go back to the noisy way. ;-)
I'd be glad to take you up next time you're near Lake Tahoe.
