Re: Major Achievements

I'm pretty sure it wasn't URO since I know they're awful. I don't really remember but I'm about 75% confident it was Meyle - their quality seems to be pretty random. Whenever possible I also prefer to buy the same manufacturer as the OE part. Unfortunately aftermarket parts support for older Audis i...

Re: Major Achievements

Why would I want to pay top dollar on new parts that will outlive the rest of the car? Gosh...maybe because the used parts you just put in there are in no better shape than the ones that came out or at least won't be in better shape for very long, so you may have to do the job again and buy the par...

Interesting idea... it would also greatly help the TV news folks, who depend heavily on people having died in unnatural fashions for their ratings.

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Never mind the force on your body due to the pressure difference inside vs. outside the plane, once you're stuck in the opening.

9 PSI times... what's the surface area of an airliner window? Say the window is 10" x 12", that's 120 square inches times 9 PSI, that's 1080 lbs. of force.

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Presumably this is not the case on WN (their flights are still general admission, right?) but there would be some massive irony here if the passenger in question had paid extra for a window seat. :roll:

Re: Southwest engine went boom

I wonder how much difference it would make? I'm not being sarcastic, I really do wonder. Unbelted your body gets pulled toward the window, your head probably goes outside the plane, and you get to experience a X00 MPH slipstream, low atmospheric pressure, and below-zero temps. Plus air trying to exi...

Re: Southwest engine went boom

CNN:
Flight information provided by FlightRadar24 showed the plane went from approximately 30,000 feet to 13,000 feet in five minutes.
And... wait for it... pax are describing this 3,400 FPM descent as a "free fall". :roll:
