I entered the cockpit and it looked just like inside of the Batmobile. It was getting to the time of takeoff so I saluted the captain and headed toward my seat. I got to my seat and there was a screen where we could watch movies; it was all in English though but they had Portuguese subtitles which helped me. About 10 min into the movie, the plane started to move. I grabbed my mother’s arm and held it tight.
So he said “tomorrow all games have been cancelled because of snow but I would love for you to come back and play with us.” so I said I would love to come back and play with the team coach thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. After I finished talking to him everyone came up to me and said “see you in a few months Ricky, Don’t party too much in college.” They all just seemed like they really wanted me there. So from the moment I got there everyone had a great and happy mood. Nobody though they were better than the other and they all treat each other with respect. So I really enjoyed being around the whole team for a week and get to observe them and the way they
We took a major chair lift up to the peak of the mountain. As me and my family rose I thought to myself,” this is amazing, “I can 't believe some people see this everyday,” I thought to myself. As we ascended into the air my breath became thick and uncertain to breathe in.“Mom” I said, “ why is the air so thin.” “The higher you get up into the closed the less air,” replied my mother “so will we run out of air?’ they all laugh at that I didn 't understand why it was a reasonable question. “No Syd we will be just fine” said my father with a smile that went from ear to ear. I gave him a weak smile in return.
Stress comes in many forms from low level to extremely high, and each person deals with stress in a different way. Over the years, I have been able to mitigate stress to a manageable level. In the military, we must deal with stress on various levels. Often, we utilize risk assessments to validate the level of stress one might endure; for example, prior to an exercise, a risk assessment is given to identify stress levels of everyone in the unit. Commonly, sleep deprivation and fear of the unknown, were the two most related stress factors while in the Army.
The way people loved at him and accused him at the same time before and after his investigation is very controversial because he is an example of a celebrity metronome, although he knew what he did was the best option he could take, he was still worried for losing all the hard work he has done as a pilot so far. In addition, we can conclude that before researching the flight, the public loved Captain Sully, while the investigators did not. After the decision for the board of members, both the public and the media glorify him. This event did well for Captain Sully because after it, he accomplished many goals. Most importantly Captain Sully moved on.
“What worried him the most...wasn’t that it was too late...what really ate his insides, was the fear that it wasn’t too late.” (Sachar 146). In my opinion, these lines were the most memorable in the book. They have reminded me the true meaning of friendship and how much a person can care about somebody else. I put these words into my own life thinking about how I would feel if my best friend went missing and I had no way of getting ahold of them to know if they were okay. It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero.
Living up to his name on the recording, she only identifies the man as “naughty pilot.” The pilot asked Chloe and her friend if the two of them would like to join him in the cockpit once the flight had taken off. He then proceeded to show the two women his “Mile High Club” tie clip to prove how many flight attendants and stewardesses he had been with. Once Chloe and her friend reached the cockpit, “naughty pilot” put a great deal of effort into trying to impress the ladies, including serving them with champagne. The man must have become star struck and forgot the fact that since 9/11, pilots are no longer allowed to have civilians accompany them in the front area of the plane. Another major no no the pilot violated the entire flight was smoking cigarettes.
He won the battle not because of superior odds, but as a result of the speech that invigorated a true fighting spirit of his men. A peasant with nothing to live for and no will to fight will not perform nearly as well as a man filled with dignity and honor. King Henry made all of his comrades feel as though they weren’t anything, but dignified warriors. His speech was able to compose this great of an impact with his speech with reason that his words are backed up by his past actions. A marvelous king can rule righteously, a great king can also love and be loved by his
Unbroken and Catch 22 were both very eye opening books. Both books gave me insight to what life in the military is like. Not only did it teach me what people in the military and war go through on a daily basis, but it made me think deeper about life in general. In Unbroken it made me be so thankful for everything that I have. Many times throughout the book, Louie was without food, water, shelter...etc.
Without even trying, he showed me that being proud of my country was my responsibility. Seeing how he had ‘dedicated his life to the stars and stripes’ had opened my eyes. I was able to see what an amazing country I had the opportunity to live in. I began to feel pride for my
Room 101 Creative writing The thing that I sincerely believe should go into room 101 is plane flights. Plane flights vary in time from 47 seconds from two Orkney Islands just 1.7 miles apart to 22 hours and 50 minutes from London to Sydney (this is bad but it is worse if you sit next to my brother). The first reason why I believe that plane journeys should be in room 101 is when you occasionally get that child that sits behind you and constantly fidgets and kicks your chair. This is aggravating because all you start to feel for hours on a plane journey is pressure going onto one specific point in your back ( sometimes it is like they have a target in one place and aimbot so they never miss). This becomes even worse when you tell their parents to stop but they just say “ No Brah, he 's just a kid.” But it is even worse when the parent asks their child to stop and the child says no and they don 't do anything about it.
I look out my window to see nothing but white. Snow was coming down by the second and I knew it was going to cause a problem. The pilot came over the intercom and said that his navigation system went out and all connections to the airport were gone. I feel the plane bounce down, and in my head I know that we are going down. As the plane is swirling down toward the ground, I hear people screaming and babies crying.
After we secured the sniper, he was taken to the nearest FOB. -5- OUTCOMES This Scout Platoon would be like no other that I would ever serve in again. After our mentor died, a part of all of us went with him, but what we would gain in the end was immeasurable. We learned just how close we really were, all of us came together by the likes of nothing that I had ever seen before. We gained a new fire in our bellies, and finished the deployment strong and did our best to follow his teachings.
