I mean it this time

Okay.  I know I said that I was moving on from the Arctic.  I lied.  I must share these anecdotes:

Anecdote No. 1: The pilot on the right in this photograph was named Smirnoff

Anecdote No. 2:
Don’t let those big, official-looking aviation headsets fool you.  The pilot on the left had his plugged into an iPod Shuffle (see it clipped there, just to the right of his hand?)

The moral of these anecdotes:
Arctic pilots are undeniably badass.

Goodbye, Arctic.  I mean it this time.
