Only deadish, had a liver bypass. The Akevitt now bypasses the liver, which is a good thing.

Very few flights for me, all boring, 6x A330, 2x 738 in real life, then a sh.., sorry, truck load of flights with various aircraft on our tower sim, several with less than desired outcome, had it been real life ;-)

2017 should bring me back to Denmark and operational life at a tower, which shall remain undisclosed until contract is signed. But I will warn potential pilots which airport to avoid after March ;-)

Thanks M,
Yeah, I have been absent from a lot of things the past couple of years, hopefully this move back to Denmark will remedy that ;-)
