Re: Karaoke

What I absolutely hate is listening to someone sing, or play out of tune/pitch. It physically hurts.
If ever, had to be blind drunk, I attempted something as stupid it had to be Lee Marwin's Wan'drin' Star. For obvious reasons.

Hard labour.

I've been working hard, very hard. I've even broken a sweat thanks to silly temperatures, for May. Today was close to 30 C.

Re: Airbus sucks too

Well, Lukla is at about 9000ft. So depending where you were, you might have been at a lower altitude than in Peru. I know how high I was, and bear in mind, if your destination airport is at 100 feet as, you don't cruise there at 100 feet. Per Going to Lukla? Likely not mote than 12500ft (and probab...

Re: The PROPER way to run an airline.

Was offered an upgrade AF, Business to First, LAX -CDG, '95. Asked if could smoke there, answer no. Thanks, but no thanks.
Ten mins later, "Mr. Bertelsen, it's OK, you may smoke in our First, you will be the only one there."

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

On a second thought... 1250 lb of useful load A cruise speed of 200 kts with a stall speed of 53 kts. A rate of climb of 2000 fpm A range of 2600 NM Is not a typical combination of characteristics for a certified airplane. Especially not one with an empty weight of 1600 lb and 200 HP.

Re: Per deals with rudder hard-over

I provide the thrust, monkeys on the bridge decide what to do with it.
In this case the monkeys were probably Italians.
Surprised they didn't abandon ship ahead of their pax.
