    I've seen a similar thread in some other forums, and thought it would be fun to have this as an ongoing thread.

    I'll kick this off: Saw Charlie Weiss in the C terminal in CLT waiting for a flight to Kansas City (this was a few weeks ago, before he left the Chiefs for the Florida Gators). A few people stopped by and took pictures with him, but he mostly just sat there and talked on the phone.

    Feel free to post in the days and weeks ahead when/if you spot someone interesting!

    Spotted Henry Winkler on US27 from PHX-LAX (he was 2C, I was 3F) this morning. I know he's probably most famous for Fonzie in Happy Days, but I really loved his character in Arrested Development, so it was fun to see him.

    Did you give him an "Aeeey!" and a thumbs up?

    In my, so far, brief time with US:
    • sat behind former 49er great Dana Stubblefield in F (he did not recline)
    • saw Kenny G board last and head for Y.

    I sat behind former NFL QB Jeff Garcia in F a few months ago. Apparently he's playing in the United Football League now.

    I saw Bob Denver (Gilligan) on a CLT-LAX flight shortly before he died. I was in 1C and he was in 1F. The FA was VERY attentive to him, and he signed a photo for her.

    My folks saw then Senator Joe Biden on a MHT-PHL flight back in 2006 (don't remember which month, but they were going home after visiting me for the weekend).

    My Dad recalled asking if he was going to run for President, and he just smiled.

    Peter Bonerz on a PHL-LAX flight about 10 years ago--he's a very tall man.
    Andrew Cuomo on a shuttle flight when he was still a cabinet member
    Ed Colodny former US CEO on a shuttle flight about 4 years ago...sat next to him and we had a very nice conversation.

    He's a good friend of one of my mom's good friends. When she (my mom's good friend) mentioned it, she was shocked that I had heard of him. [​IMG]

    My favorite celebrity sighting was many years ago - Spring of 2004 - I was at the gate, waiting for a connection to PVR with several friends and suddenly a hush came over the gate. They had off-loaded the arriving plane and one of the passengers was Muhammad Ali - they put him on a cart and as they drove away, he gave a nod and a wave. As he was driven out of site, the folks at the gate started to applaud. It was cool.
