While sitting and waiting for my recent Frontier Airlines flight to complete boarding, I noticed the captain arriving. He was carrying what looked like a large transparent blue earth globe. He quickly entered the cockpit, leaving me to wonder what this new navigation device was. Later in flight, the flight attendent opened the cockpit door and I looked in. The globe was actually a beach ball, and the captain had wedged it into the front window above the glare shield. He was using it to keep the sun out of his eyes!
