Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Physical punishment is also OK for stupid pilots and sub-stupid drone operators. Who goes first? [ not _a jetphoto] Unfortunately, one needs to deviate from type specific (or fundamental) procedure and fly their drone (or laser pointer) in the vicinity of an airport (and associated photographers).....

Boeing Bobby Storm Penetration Thread

Ok, this is a complicated post, but there has always seemed to be a lot of dichotomies and inconsistencies in storm avoidance. In this youtube, we see a SW 737 fly essentially next to a tornado. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsACwJkp0CI I am pretty sure this was a 'warned storm' when the tornado f...

Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Does a thread like this need someone to make a pompous post of how the drone operator should receive over-the-top physical punishment, or is that more for laser-pointer threads?

Re: Meanwhile, in Flyover America

On a reasonably related topic, does your airport have a gate 13? I've noticed some have chosen to exclude it.

Dude makes acceptable short/sort field landings and take offs in an old 182. Not one reply. All trolling aside, no one sees the fun of it, the beauty of good ole light plane skills, nor does anyone want to render arm chair reviews? No one?

Re: THERE HAS BEEN A NEAR TOTAL INCIDENT OF STRANGENESS...

Part of me still wants to call a 'strangeness foul' on ATC not being slightly more accommodating- but conversely, the plane guys were specifically NOT_saying the "E-word". The controller could (should?) have declared the plane in fuel emergency. Just furthering the discussion: The pilot is responsi...

Embraer?
Actually I think it WAS an Embraer...an MB-80...the one with 5-across seating....looks like a 140, but more of a full-sized airliner.
