These pilots do work hard for their flight pay and we all thank them for it. BTW - This video has been viewed on Facebook over 186,000 times and shared 1,100 times. (That's a lot.)

Outstanding video and flying!!! That is one way to disprove the old saying "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink! Wanna bet??? Drink or swim!
Watch the opening sequence to Steven Spielberg's "Always".
