Here are some airline-related web logs that I follow.

  • Fly with Me, a sort-of monthly podcast from a professional airline pilot. A glimpse into the world behind that cockpit door.
  • Flight Attendant Betty, another podcast, this one from your friendly flight attendant. (Though I have to admit, in Episode 2, I skipped over the disaster story and listened just to the stories of the world's stupidest hijackers.)
  • Yu Hu Stewardess, a flight attendant who isn't afraid to talk about all the stupid passengers she has to put up with (Do you recognize yourself?) and talk about what life is like when you spend a significant fraction of your nights away from home.
  • Doing Boeing, the web log of a Boeing database administrator. From the original technology company in the Seattle area.
  • The 777 Flight Test Journal. I had been looking for something to replace Randy Baseler's blog in my Boeing blogroll because Randy's was just all marketing hot air. The Flight Test Journal still feels a bit too heavily-managed, but it's a big improvement.

Ry Jones recommends FlightAware, a web site for all your planespotting needs.

    What! You mean you don’t regularly check in to Queen Of Sky (http://www.queenofsky.net)?

    There’s also Ask the Captain, by Meryl Getline http://www.usatoday.com/travel/columnist/getline/index.htm

  3. Wow… this is amazing! I had no idea that people actually read my blog… I guess I better start writing stuff for it again.

    I hope we don’t run into that little problem that Boeing is notorious for anymore, layoffs. "They" claim they’re taking steps to prevent it, but I’m not sure. We’re on the uphill of a cycle (maybe we’re on top of the cycle right now), but in 5 years, that could be completely different story.

    I’m glad to hear that you’re a regular reader, and want to thank you for sending some of your fans my way.

    "Ask the pilot" at http://www.salon.com is good, too.

  6. As SLF (self-loading freight = PAX = passenger) with PPL (private pilot’s license) pretensions, I find PPrune a good read:

    I like http://flightlevel390.blogspot.com/

    He has quite a enjoyable way of writing, not as many updates as I’d wish though.

    Check inFlightHQ and let us know if appeals to you. It’s sponsored by Connexion by Boeing and covers productivity when traveling.

WHY DID I DUPLICATE THIS CONTENT HERE? Let me first say this site has never had anything to sell and has never shown ads of any kind. I have nothing monetarily to gain by duplicating content here. Because I had made my own local copy of this content throughout the years, for ease of using tools like grep, I decided to put it online after I discovered some of the original content previously and publicly available, had disappeared approximately early to mid 2019. At the same time, I present the content in an easily accessible theme-agnostic way.

The information provided by Raymond's blog is, for all practical purposes, more authoritative on Windows Development than Microsoft's own MSDN documentation and should be considered supplemental reading to that documentation. The wealth of missing details provided by this blog that Microsoft could not or did not document about Windows over the years is vital enough, many would agree an online "backup" of these details is a necessary endeavor.
