Very Cool! A Day In The Life Of A Boeing 737 Airline Pilot

by SharonKurheg

Ah, the stuff you find on TikTok…

@almostcaptainmorgan is the (very creative) TikTok handle of a woman who identifies herself as a First Officer/Pilot on Boeing 737s. The background of her videos is oftentimes the cockpit of a plane, with tarmacs seen out the windows (psst! – she’s surrounded by Southwest planes) so I’m kind of not doubting her ;-).

Anyway, she’s been posting her videos on TikTok since February 2021, and they’re actually pretty cool – they give you a pilot’s viewpoint of, well, being a pilot.

Some of her more popular entries are her “Day In The Life Of An Airline Pilot” videos:

And because I’m me ;-), I think my favorite video of @almostcaptainmorgan is the PSA she gave about Denver International Airport after some recent renovations:

@almostcaptainmorgan

100% thought this was the coolest thing ever until I got to the plane 😳 #denver #airport #airlinepilot #traveltiktok

Yeah, about that last one…Denver International Airport spokesperson Mindy Crane told The Denver Post that only the sink area is visible to taxiing passengers and the design was intended to let in more natural light and help people apply makeup and fix their hair.

“No, people cannot see you using the bathroom from the tarmac. People are only visible from the sinks, when they’re washing their hands. The stalls themselves are completely private,” Crane told The Denver Post. “When people are washing their hands, you can see out onto the airfield. It gives people a cool view.”

Just don’t change your clothes by the sinks, I guess?

Anyway, so that’s @almostcaptainmorgan. Her videos are fun, and definitely from a POV that travelers might appreciate. You can check out all of her videos at https://www.tiktok.com/@almostcaptainmorgan.
