A couple years ago I was up with my instructor doing some mock instrument work. We were climbing straight ahead, but as soon as we entered the cloud and everything went gray, my brain determined we were actually making a climbing right hand turn.

If someone is not used to flying on instruments, which JFK Jr was not, those conditions are absolutely deadly.
I know, just messin around. I believe dads pilot buddies call it "SPATIAL-DIS" or something like that. If you spend enough time around pilots, you start to learn the lingo, its almost like the have their own language. As a kid,about once a month we would fly to a small airport a couple hundred miles away that had a restaurant in it for breaksfast with a bunch of dads pilot buddies. They would come from all over the place, i got to know some really cool people. But thats why dad only goes up on "CAVU" blue bird days.

The old $100 hamburger... more like $250 today.

I seldom flew in CAVU, enjoyed the technical challenge of LIFR
