    Looking for an old Politically Incorrect UAL poem

    Back in the late nineties /early 2000; definitely pre-9/11 there was a popular poem going around on the old AOL aviation boards. Affirmative Action hiring was what everyone was talking about when they had nothing else to talk about.

    This poem was told from the perspective of a self deprecating female pilot. She said United hired Debbie, Tyrone, and Abdul Raheet. It concluded with her saying that she lost an engine on take off and the plane veered left and right until the day was saved by her captain who used to be a freight dawg (how'd he get hired if the rest was true?)

    Anyhoo. Can't find it anymore but it would be a useful history lesson if anyone has it.

    The many crashes of United were piloted by ex-military pilots.

    Yes, also Delta and more recently FedEx.
    I'm not trying to debate the merits of hiring any group here. Just documenting attitudes
