Which meant a steep turn as soon as we got air Standing up in front of Captain Fransbergen We're going to make quite a pair Rolling right we cleared the palm trees The wheels went in the wells The flaps came up and so did our speed As we roared right over Jack Tar's hotel I'll never forget all those startled faces As our Boeing dominated the tranquil scene Bursting into the blue above the shoreline Of the Caribbean, placid, emerald green Sometimes I hate being a co-pilot Some captains can make you feel below But as we leave a thousand, I'm way up high Thank you Bobby Rowe 30 April 1985 From the Organizers of Picnic Reunion YVR 2018: Parking will be available by the picnic site.
