Re: MORE Amusing...

Monty Python have shaped my worldview. If not my worldview, certainly my English-language humor was (and is) heavily influenced by them. For some reason the skit of flying lessons is apparently highly scrubbed from the internet. 3BS's weak memory & shortened for time: Stand up and flap your arms......

Re: Italian Greek Salad

Gabiee: Nope. This one touched 50 (?) ft SHORT of the DISPLACED threshold. I will follow the pros.
Hmmm. Noted, and Indeed. We do not, nor will we ever understand why nor what it is like to fly a transport aircraft.

Re: Italian Greek Salad

Goodness. Evanie's procedures be damned, that sure goes against almost everything I have seen (and at least one instance of being admonished by a CFI on a short field landing). Almost always cross the threshold at about 50 feet. Do we think he had a LOT of recent 172 experience and forgot there was ...

Re: Amusing

Keep in mind that the most sensitive piece of electronic equipment in that cockpit is the pilot's wristwatch. Well, sorta! You've got your VOR/ILS and ADF receivers (and their wiring/antennas) which technically aren't in the cockpit, but technically they're not in the pax cabin either. And still th...

Re: Amusing

The key here is that they are manually flying a non-fly-by-wire aeroplanie. Turn up the volume of your walkman when AP is enabled (or in a fly-by wire aeroplanie) and you run the risk of commanding a relentless pull-up (and who knows what could happen if you push the eject button :o :shock: ). I ha...

Re: Amusing

Concur on thread title. I see an interesting similarity to a 727 at Flyover YouTube. The flyover landing has lots of Summer PM turbulence and the dude cranks the hell out of the wheel. In this one, the dude calmly cranks the wheel a good bit and holds it and either nothing happens or a very slow rol...

Re: Holy avionics, Batman!

(this is the hones question) Can you actually identify what is down there? Hopefully that question wasn't directed at me because... hell no! Although I suspect if you just started putting together random combinations of 3 or 4 letters (FMC, RMA, TPS, GTFO), you'd get there eventually. :lol: HAL. (T...

What if it was a genuine question regarding an admittedly off-the-wall post about Machado being similar to Monchavo in the sound AND a similarity from connections to aviation?

He's typing drunk again, carry on. No. Off the wall and sometimes LSD747-like, yes. Forever in search of ironing...even mild ironing...yes. Upon further research, Machado was a typist for AOPA pilot conveying lots of great advice for everyone who operates aeroplanies. I still suspect a conspiracy.
