Dennis Currie flew B777s across the pond to the UK one day then a couple of days later he was flying a Cessna 185 floatplane somewhere on the B.C. coast looking for herring balls for  a fleet of fishing boats.  He recorded his adventures from both left seats in a lyrical fashion, sort of like the words to a ballad. You won't put this one down until you reach the last words of his songs...  

Oh, so you're the real pilot

Said one of the herring fishermen to me

Referring to the fact that I usually fly

A large jet overseas


No, the guys right here are the real pilots

I tactfully tried to explain

I mostly just sit and wait for England 

The coastal pilots actually fly their plane

When the fog gets bad, the Boeing stays in auto

Logs on the runway are never a threat

The wings never tangle in fishing boat rigging

Hunded foot separation is unheard of in a jet

I came out here to be a real pilot

Sort of a bus driver's holiday

So, buddy when the real pilots are listening

Please be careful what you say.
