Hi Folks:
First of all let me say how much I enjoy your netletter. It's kind of
like a letter from home from time to time to let you know how old
friends are doing.
Secondly I'm enlisting your help in trying to find an old friend & co-
worker from our TCA/AC days. His name is Cal Copeland & his wife's name
is Cherry. The last I heard of him after he retired was that he moved
to somewhere in the Atlantic provinces. During his long career he
worked in YOW, YUL & YVR. Hope you can help us out.
Many thanks & regards   Stew Stockfish... YAM...........E-mail

Dear Terry and Vesta:
I know how the Between Yourselves Netletter prides itself in keeping
above politics, but the times are indeed "interesting". My kudos to you
for printing Don Demeza's excellent insight regarding the current
situation. On Sept 3rd I e-mailed the following letter to Macleans
Magazine in a somewhat "I-dare-you- to-publish-this" vein, but maybe
they will. They at least acknowledged it. You MAY wish to add it to a
future Netletter.
Best regards,Keith Hatfield (retired AC, Halifax) (we decided not to
print the article in BYN,Keith, because of its length..ed vs)

KEEPING TRACK OF OUR TCC

Tue, 21 Sep 1999 15:16:06 -0400 (EDT)
From: Alan MacLeod <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Subject: Lockheed CF-TCC---update

Tango Charlie Charlie is back in the hanger at Winnipeg having minor
maintenance performed.
We flew the aircraft for DREAMS TAKE FLIGHT on the 16th,17th,18th and
19th of Sept. .from the Western Canadian Aviation Museum at the
Winnipeg airport. There were literally dozens of people out to support
the cause and experience a flight. Unique, we departed and arrived from
the very door in the original TCA hanger where TCC operated from in
1937 when it was doing line service.

Four flights a day for the four days gave 144 people a flight over
Winnipeg, then up as far north to Selkirk then to the bottom of lake
Winnipeg and then back to Winnipeg.

Among the passengers were George Richardson and his son Hartly
Richardson. It was George's father James Richardson, and Hartley's
grandfather, who started Western Canada Airways in 1926 and then
Canadian Airways Limited in 1930. Both men continue to run the
Richrdson family business today. They are very supportive of the
Western Canadian Aviation Museum and the Dreams Take Flight Program.

Tango Charlie Charlie has one more day of scheduled flying at St.
Andrews Airport on Sept. 25th. The Lockheed will participate in the 75
anniversary celebrations of the Winnipeg Flying Club there. TCC will be
flying four flights in support of DREAMS TAKE FLIGHT while other Flying
Club activities are in progress.

Following the days activities the aircraft will return to the Winnipeg
Maintenance Base for some grooming and an oil change before being
placed in the museum for the winter and a well deserved rest!.

There are lots of activities planned for the 25th at St. Andrews, one
of which is a barbeque. Why not drop by if you are in the area.

Alan MacLeod.

FROM RAPCAN
Date: Mon, 20 Sep 1999 20:02:59 -0700
Subject: Capt. Deborah McCoy

HOUSTON (AP) -- Continental Airlines said Monday it has named a woman
to lead its flight operations, the first such appointment in the nation
by a major airline.

Capt. Deborah McCoy will supervise more than 5,200 pilots and 8,700
flight attendants as Continental's senior vice president of flight
operations, a newly created position. Her responsibilities include
hiring, training and direction of all crew members.

Capt. McCoy, a DC-10 pilot who joined Continental in 1979, had been
vice president of training and inflight. She now reports directly to
C.D. McLean, executive vice president of operations.

According to the airline's research, Capt. McCoy is the first woman in
the nation -- and possibly in the world -- to lead a major commercial
airline's pilot group.

``This really is a significant achievement for somebody like Debbie,''
McLean said. ``It hasn't been too many years ago since the first female
pilot arrived on the scene, and she was one of the first.''

Capt. McCoy previously piloted DC-9, MD-80 and Airbus 300 aircraft and
held positions as a fleet manager and director of flight standards and
training. In 1984, she headed a newly formed operational performance
department that Continental said was instrumental in improving the
airline's on-time performance.

As vice president of flight-training and inflight, she was credited
with improving Continental's pilot and flight attendant training
programs and upgrading training facilities with state-of-the-art
simulators.

``Capt. McCoy is one of the best and brightest in the business. In
addition to being a superior pilot, she's an analytical thinker who
knows how to get results,'' said Gordon Bethune, the airline's chairman
and chief executive.

COMPUTERS NEWS
Subject: Y2K Virus warnings
Date: Fri, 24 Sep 1999 20:24:45 -0400
Computer security experts are warning that as the January 1 2000 date
approaches, we will see an increase in the number of Y2K (Year 2000)
related viruses and hoaxes. There are Y2K viruses who use the 1 January
2000 date as a trigger for their malicious payloads, programs that gain
entry to your system posing as Year 200 solutions (Trojan Horses), and
Y2K related hoaxes. Last week we were notified by Microsoft of a Trojan
Horse, send in an e- mail purporting to be a free Microsoft Year 2000
countdown clock.
Here is the text resembling the e-mail:

Subject: Microsoft Announcement
Date: Tue, 14 Sep 1999 23:37:05 +0200
To All Microsoft Users,
We are excited to announce the Microsoft Year 2000 Counter.
Start the countdown NOW.
Let us all get in the 21 Century.
Let us lead the way to the future and we will get YOU there FASTER and
SAFER.
Thank you,Microsoft Corporation
Attached is a file with such names as Y2KCOUNT.EXE, Count2K.exe, or
other names.
If launched, the virus program replaces the Wsock32.dll file on the
user's local system, with a Trojan version that gives the user the
unknown ability to send fake messages. The Wsock32.dll file is
essential for Net connection. The Trojan also steals user
identifications and passwords.

SMILIE
I had been doing Tech Support for Hewlett-Packard's DeskJet division
for about a month when I had a customer call with a problem I just
couldn't solve. She could not print yellow. All the other colors would
print fine. This truly baffled me because the only true colors are
cyan, magenta, and yellow. For instance, green is a combination of cyan
and yellow; but green printed fine. Every color of the rainbow printed
fine except for yellow! I had the customer change ink cartridges. I had
the customer delete and reinstall the drivers. Nothing worked. I asked
my coworkers for help; they offered no new ideas. After over two hours
of troubleshooting, I was about to tell the customer to send the
printer in to us for repair when she asked quietly, "Should I try
printing on a piece of white paper instead of this yellow paper?"


.  That's it for this time, please we need your input, send
comments and email addresses of any others who may be
interested to Vesta with a copy to Terry.
