Questions about food poisoning

I have had several emails about why didn't more people on that flight get food poisoning. Simple. Eggs Benedict only were served in fist class. Coach would have had a cheese omelet or cereal, maybe some fruit. In the late 1960s I did fly on 707s in both coach and first, so this is from actual experience.

I was being kind to you dear readers. I thought about having it through out the entire aircraft. But the thought of the stench and human misery was more than I could stomach.

Corrections Chapter 7

I have received 47 emails since posting Chapter 7. Everyone was polite so was easy to react to. By far the most noticed was the fact the 737 wasn't from that time frame, nor the 727.

I had the wrong altitude for a east bound flight.
Flaps down to slow down.
Dump fuel at a slower speed to not tear wings off.
Not TRACON but ARTCC and control centers.
Different wording mistakes.
The Henry golden boy wrong gun. 44 mag is the Big Boy. (I have one in my gun safe!) Oh well.
Last note on flying stuff. Took my aircraft information from Boeing flight check list for a 707-131b. They tell how to dump fuel, but not to slow down!
There was also a note on radio frequencies but not doing anything on that.
Again Thanks to all, I know they seem like nits to some, but to others they interrupt the flow.

Had Bret and Bart Maverick mixed up, no excuse. Reposted chapter. Going to drink a Mexicali Delight now.
