    Folks

    As you probably know, the charity drive this time is in Honor of Suzanne Stork, a MegaDoer and friend who lost her battle with cancer back in February.

    More about the charity and Suzanne here: https://milepoint.com/forums/threads/in-honor-of-suzanne-stork.115688/

    We'll have some fun auctions, this is a big one. Have you ever dreamt about sitting in the cockpit jump seat at take off or landing? Well, now is your chance!


    What are you bidding on
    We are auctioning off the take off from Stockholm, landing in Toulouse and take of from Toulouse. You will be strapped in before leaving the gate and get to ride in the cockpit till after the seatbelt sign has been switched off. For landing, you will be strapped in 10 minutes before the seatbelt sign gets turned on and stay in the seat till we are at the gate.

    Auction rules:

    If you want to bid, post in this thread.

    The auction will conclude on Monday at midnight Eastern US time.

    Absolutely no alcohol before your slot in the cockpit. Captain's discretion.

    How to bid?

    Reply to this thread with for example:

    Take off Stockholm, 200 dollars


    This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity,

    Best of luck everyone!

    Sorry, that's not an option due to UK regulations.

    I'm in for $300 for any slot. I'm a non drinker so any is OK by me.

    For those who want to know what it was like in previous MegaDos to be in the cockpit, here's what the landing in TLS was like last time:





    No guarantees of a repeat low pass, naturally.

    I've got some footage from the cockpit on the SAS MegaDo from 2013 as well:

    Am guessing a lot of you guys (gold / silver members ) have already experienced the takeoffs/landings. First time for me, hence the hole in my pocket (for now) :p
