Re: 777X: now with improved ventilation!

***it was an engineering success that they got so close to what the engineering model predicted.*** You engineers and computer models... Cue the following: 1. 1955 era attitudes that engineers were out to kill pilots and ruin airplanes. 2. A BBieeee rant about ACTUALLY doing it instead of doing it ...

Evanie's post on UA 553

He may have been being sarcastic. Then again, the pilots violated the "stabilized approach rule" and dived a bit too much, and he made his all-too-normal admonishing statement that they had get there itus and could have avoided it. I double posted it here, because I found the conspiracy theory angle...

F.A.O.: flyboy

As Bobby reminds me, I have never truly "done it" professionally, therefore I have one specific question... Is a plane that sat out all night in sub-freezing weather snow going to NORMALLY require a simple, but good sweeping of everything off? OR Will there LIKELY be snow that sticks to the wing and...

Re: Pilatus crash, blizzard, SD

For the first time I see flyboy’s assertion that the userid might represent be two persons.

Indeed.

Please note that while my perception was lacking, my attention to the teachings of the ISGPOTM was fairly good.

Re: Pilatus crash, blizzard, SD

Today’s learning is that Mr. Airbus FCOM and automation regurgitator has never considered the calculated risk that a school bus of nuns gets lost on a runway with 0.5 miles visibility during takeoff OR landing. For the first time I see flyboy’s assertion that the userid might represent be two persons.

Reminds me of this guy who managed to shove 14 people on a PC-12.
And the cause was failure to add fuel deicer and mismanagement of a fuel imbalance. Fascinating.

Re: Pilatus crash, blizzard, SD

I would welcome flaming, but I didn’t think an instrument takeoff was that big of a deal (as Bobby wants to make it). Slightly tougher spatial disorientation, but watching an attitude indicator and keeping FDnH is pretty damn basic...not very different from initiating a climb in IMC. I did a few hoo...

If the “perving” part is adult RJ hosties in the woods (or similar adult activities), I believe this is an excellent activity...cameras not_required, either.

Pilatus crash, blizzard, SD

Sounds like a do it yourselfer who wanted a flying 12 passenger Ford Econoline. Crashed shortly after takeoff in “blizzard like conditions”. Several did died, but a couple of survivors. Due to there being survivors, I will speculate that the crash basically happened on takeoff. Then again, engine fa...

Especially since it is impossible to write FARs to properly address engine failures, and impossible to for the industry to properly use “mayday, mayday, mayday”.

Please tell us how and when changes occurred.

Re: Question for Flyboy: thrust increase after take-off

That's a tough one. The JT-8's would fit under the wing better (thus avoiding any mounting weirdness that might tempt the manufacturer to install a Multiple Crash Achieving System to compensate) and have that cool "retro sound". OTOH the 56's tend to explode less. Good thoughts. If we keep the aero...
