quite a few years back.
And, of course, many countries didn't want
our foot and mouth to infect their cattle.
So arriving in Canada, we'd always have to walk through
a disinfectant bath as we got off the aircraft.
The Americans when we landed one time in America,
I do remember that their customs and agriculture
that would clear the aircraft would often come and inspect
and look around.
And I was captain of the aircraft
and it seemed to be taking a long time
to clear that day and I went down the back
to just see if I could help in any way, assist.
And I asked the inspector what he was looking for.
And he looked at me, completely deadpan and told me,
"I'm looking for foot and mouth."
And I just had this image of little green monsters
climbing around our freight bay.
I couldn't really contain myself
and had to run back on the flight deck and hide.
