Who's Got Tool Bag? [Diva Day]
Today marked Diva Day. 17 pilots rose to the occassion with
Nosepicker navigating. He led us through the locks to LunaBovas for
pastry molecules. En route we orbited some planets of the
NorthEndSystem in retrograde motion, which added some excitement.
Pywaket fell off Catastrophe as we approached our first destination.
We took a long break to eat and chat and then headed towards the giant
nebula of BostonHahbah. That's when the effect of Pywaket's previous
fall became known. Some alighnement issues on Catastrophe readily
presented themselves as did the fact that somehow no one had tool bag.
Ahem. This led us to have to do some Apollo13-style engineering on the
fly using only what was readily available to make her flightworthy.
Bodily force and a pole seemed to remedy the issue.
Once Catastrophe was back in go-fly condition, we headed to what
civilians call a "playground" where Nosepoicker displayed superior
Finally we headed along the BostonHahbah nebula a ways until we
encountered another mechanical on DrLove (which we fixed with various
random tools pilots had on them) and then we headed back towards the
fort. On the way to the fort a transport had a very close call with
Treehugger making EvilTwin's first tailgunning experience a bit dicey.
But, thankfully, the transport swerved in time. Five pilots burned
up on reentry; the rest arrived back at the fort safe and sound.
