Jon,

That looks like you are well covered, the initial pictures did not indicate your backups. I agree, flying on the tops of a layer is magical and back in the old days I'd give my Pax a little something to enjoy when delaying the climb to gain speed in the 727 and then gently continue the climb so they could see our shadow race on that white blanket. Yes, I was hand flying that bird and only gave her over to the auto pilot after leveling off.
