Day 2 began with a 6:15AM briefing of the day's flight plan -- two evening takeoffs and instrument landings at San Franscisco International Airport. Each of us would get to experience the flight profile twice -- once as the First Officer, and once as Captain. The FO is in charge of flight systems, throttle settings, flaps and speed brakes, even the passenger announcement. The Captain basically just flies the plane. Wayne wouldn't let us take off until I got on the microphone and welcomed our imaginary passengers on Continental Flight 456 with an on-time departure from San Francisco to San Francisco.
