I want to introduce you to Troy Booker, a United Airlines Boeing 787 pilot with a zest for social media and an eye for detail. Obviously, I like aviation, so maybe I'm biased. But I'd venture to say Booker has one of the best Instagram accounts out there.
I've never met or spoken to Booker. But through the magic of the internet, I know a bit about him. For example, he recently proposed to his girlfriend while flying a private-owned L-39 jet. She was wearing a personalized flight suit at the time. And there's video!
The in-flight proposal is cool. But as a commercial aviation guy, I prefer Booker's informative Instagram pictures about what it's like to fly the 787, often from the West Coast to Asia. Let's take a look.
