|Airport - Seoul|
That journey included a tour of the cockpit for a few select passengers of who I ended up being one. I can still remember my first encounter with the concept of auto pilot. I think shock registered at walking into the cockpit, being overwhelmed by complexity of it all and then realizing that both the pilot and co-pilot faced me with their back to the wide open sky. "It's on auto-pilot," the captain assured me with a smile. And really, his smile wasn't wide enough. Auto-pilot had me uneasy for the duration of the trip. Thank goodness for the Mai Tais.
