Stories - My Own Airport

My Own Airport Bi l l Si l ver

I met Pierre at a Software QA conference in Orlando - sometime in the early 90’s. He attended my tutorial, and afterward invited me to go to dinner with him and three of his friends from Montreal. He told me he was the leader of a Software Testing and QA group in Montreal. He invited me to give a one-day tutorial to his group. I accepted. A few months later - in February - I was flying north from Logan Airport in a Northwest Express 11-passenger plane. I did not have to worry about getting an aisle or window seat because there was only one seat on each side of the aisle.

The only other passenger was an elderly woman, and the co-pilot told us exactly which row to sit in – each of us on opposite sides of the plane. The co-pilot said this was to “ balance the plane ”.
