08/12/14 - On Tuesday’s Topical Currents, we continue our series “All in a Day’s Work”, with retired commercial airline pilot Bruce Bornstein. His flying days began  with sometimes harrowing, backwoods mail runs and continued through his days in the Captain’s chair of some of the world’s largest jumbo jets. We’ll find out what it takes to become  a commercial pilot and what  takes place before, during and after a flight. That’s All in a Day’s Work with retired Captain Bruce Bornstein, on Topical Currents, Tuesday at 1:00pm on WLRN.
