Re: Ludicrous livery

I will let 3WE handle the rejections :mrgreen: Indeed . 1. Just about anything dealing with aerioplanies is beautiful. BUT 2. My opinion is that your photos contain much great composition- often multiple aeroplanies in action. Some 1/3 - 2/3 composure, COMFORTABLY and ARTFULLY cropped...All around ...

WN- No Fly List

Yahoo says the puke-orange- and puke-blue-liveried airline made a THIRD precautionary landing due to pressurization problems. (No spectacular window events on this one). Ban Southwest!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-44121377 Breakfast or not, I always thought that the sudden plunging needed to be to 10,000 ft......... Much discussion there over altitude vs. health. 10,000 feet is a nice round number where most healthy people can hang out all day long. I forget, but at 2...

<Evan> <The CVR> "We have an engine failure, that's it. Indeed , I find this mildly curious and look forward to the timeline in the final report. Nevertheless, my parlour speculation is it all happened in a rather quick sequence, and the crew simply didn't think to say they had a pressurization pro...

Ironingly- in the May issue of Aviation Typists, Garrison writes an almost scary article on the premise that he is unfamiliar with how the Mel...

Concur that it LOOKS like some sort of left side power loss and speed decay. Thinking there’s likely a radio call that isn’t in the headlines yet.

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

On a second thought... 1250 lb of useful load A cruise speed of 200 kts with a stall speed of 53 kts. A rate of climb of 2000 fpm A range of 2600 NM Is not a typical combination of characteristics for a certified airplane. Especially not one with an empty weight of 1600 lb and 200 HP.

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

It is a fun challenge. Many people build their own plane from kits (that are largely pre-built already). But very very few manage to build from scratch and fly a plane that them designed themselves. If you talk practical, no, it is not practical. Climbing the Everest is not practical either. Or doi...

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

Sorry to hear that. Due to many comments by Flyboy and some others, it appears that Richard was sometimes full of crap, and was somewhat liberal with unsolicited outsider advice, like the proverbial we like to provide. That being said, he fed us outsiders with stories of going here and there in the ...

What sensible safety measures do we take when in SA? (as seen there)

I may know more about photography than the JP screeners, but alas, I have no credentials.

Still 1/3 2/3 composure and human foreground clutter are generally pleasing.
