  2. I have real sympathy for night time freight dog pilots driving small packages around from hub to hub. That's a hard way to build time. Hopefully he/she keeps the job at FedEx because that's about the best you can get being a bottom-tier prop freight pilot with the worst routes and schedules.

  3. Tower cleared aircraft to land stating RVR 1000. Not an accident, but a violation.
