I'm doing a research study to compare airline pre-flight operations vs 
military C-141 preflight operations.  While I'm intimately familiar with 
C-141 ops, I don't know a whole lot about airline ops.  Specifically, I 
need to know what an airline crew does to prepare for flight from the 
time they are informed of their flight until takeoff.  i.e. preflight 
planning, aircraft preflight, cockpit preflight and timelines for these 
Also, are there any other news groups that might be of value to me on 
this project.
