|English: Alarm clock Polski: Budzik (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
I noticed there was what appeared to be some type of alarm clock installed in the control panel. Later someone told me that George would turn on the autopilot, set the alarm clock and take naps on long flights. I never noticed George nod off when I was in the copilots seat but he did tell me to keep an eye out for any other plane in the area when I first started flying with him. This kind of worried me slightly because I am essentially blind in one eye and I greatly prefer someone with two eyes looking for any potential crash partners. He did put the plane into a deliberate dive once after I said I didn't give a damn what he did.
I heard numerous flying stories from other employees regarding George which I can't verify such as running out of fuel in flight and clipping power lines because the plane was over loaded. Apparently he used a credit card once to scrap off accumulated ice from the front window during flight after something failed so he could make an important social engagement. George is a Korean war vet and a good engineer so I didn't hold minor piloting irregularities against him.
