Comment 23 sqn forgot about my 1000th hr flight and scheduled me in the backseat. Approaching landing time, the sqn realised their mistake and elected to keep the celebration for next flight and hope I was not aware of my 1000hrs. When I rang the sqn Bell and noted down 1000hrs, silence hit the sqn.
