Like so many people, I’ve been a fan of Jeopardy for a long time. I’m not able to watch it as much anymore because it airs right at our kids’ bedtime but between my wife and I, we’ve logged hours and hours and hours of Jeopardy viewing in our lifetimes.

Ross Feinstein, who used to do public relations for American Airlines and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) tweeted out yesterday: “@Jeopardy #AvGeek edition this evening: one category was “Flying Colors.” How many did you get right?”

Of course, Jeopardy decided to run an aviation themed category just a few days after I left my mother-in-law’s house in Toronto. She tunes into the show every evening at 7:30pm. My mother-in-law usually runs the board and I sit there just spouting out nonsense – mostly because I’m only half paying attention.

However, I do wish she was in my presence when the Flying Colors category hit the board because she would’ve looked at me like I was Ken Jennings.

Here are the questions, along with the answers are at the bottom of this story. Take a run through them and see how many you can answer correctly!
