Re: Was it Dummy or V-Nav who said go-arounds are not to be taken lightly?

Probably if he had lost all 3 engines the outcome would have been better. ...I am not even 100% sure that it was a stall...sudden roll and yaw...There is a name for that...Snap roll...it looks very similar to a spin but it is not because the cause of the entry is not a stall. Bullcrap! Going really...

...OTOH when I was a kid my friends and I used to fly control-line airplanes (yeah, go ahead, say it, it's lame).

Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

Just being a smart-donkey (or a smart squid)

But shouldn't the wording be that the masks drop if the pressure goes BELOW 14,000 feet?

Or if you want to use the word 'exceed'...then if the cabin altitude exceeds 14,000 feet (16K when the switch is on).

In an effort to stir crap (at a level 25% as good as Flyboy and ITS), I have razzed Brian, there. If he is in a bitchy mood, he will delete my post and ban me. A couple weeks ago, I made a zinger comment on a photo rejection too...(I note that the rejection appeal infestation in "Aviation Discu...
