This just might not end well

"Airports 'to use missiles to take down drones'"... https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/a ... e-13831803

Re: RC Aircraft Tomfoolery

What I find disturbing is there doesn't appear to be an FCOM anywhere. What's Snoopy going to do in case of runaway trim?

Re: Skylease 747F Landing Overrun Halifax

I find it disconcerting that one of the most important aspects of this story is being grossly underreported: the fact that a number of lobsters apparently are going to be able to celebrate one more Christmas than they otherwise would have.

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Good news: the matter has been settled!

According to a well-known aviation typist, it's all Boeing's fault: https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/28/opinions ... index.html

Re: FAO Per: The sinking of the SS Faro

Surprised that no-one has picked up on the frigate that presently hughs the cliffs on the west coast of Norway. Google KNM Helge Ingstad. A 400.00.000 GBP war machine sunk due deep and profound incompetence on so many levels that it's hard to believe. I've been laughing for days. At least they all ...

Funny moments in aviation-related journalism

https://www.boston.com/culture/travel/2018/11/16/logan-airport-best-in-country The URL reads "Logan airport best in country" The headline says "ranked... as one of the top 10". The article text says my friendly local airport is ranked exactly #10... out of 20 . Wow, I'm so impressed. :roll:

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Never mind the oft-cited scenario of CFIT due to pilot(s) being distracted trying to figure out why a "gear down" lamp is failing to light. In this case of course it would be because most 172s don't have retractable landing gear. :lol:

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Pray tell, how would you crash a Cessna 172 then? There are many. Here is a sampling: -Power-off, unplanned landing- likely "less than good" by "insider definitions". -Stupid IMC encounter (possibly . -Getting run over by Flyboy. -Spin out of a base-to-final turn (as punishment for all of my braggi...
