Most of my flying was in the back of RH-53D and MH-53E helicopters. I would lean my head back on the bulkhead and the vibrations would put me right to sleep. I also carried a mesh hammock in my flight gear. The H53 is big enough to string one up for those long cross country flights.
@thebigtverberg Oh man… you’re missing being crammed in like a sardine, nowhere to put your elbows, getting to have someone lose your luggage and catching someone elses strep throat because of the lousy air circulation!
Usually read if I can but man is that uncomfortable. If the flight is long like when I travel to Korea I probably didn’t sleep much the night before. So that plus the seats “recline” a 1/3 of an inch, so sleep isn’t really happening and I can only find the patience to watch movies.
Read a page or two, look out the window for a couple minutes, read a page, thankyou I’d like coffee. Black. Yes, black coffee. Thanks. Watch context-free moving images on everybody else’s seatback screens, read a page…
