Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

***A perfectly calm and rational pilot, especially without a procedure and training for no-spoilers, may miss-diagnose the lack of braking action as a brakes failure*** EXCEPT... It seemed to be clearly established that the pilots promptly diagnosed that there were no spoilers . I wish the TV show ...

Re: Discussion of Beech Bananza Crash - Engine Failure

fuel starvation is on the parlour-speculation list. It seems like it burned too well for a total absence of fuel. Understood. That being said, please list the other things likely to cause an engine to fail 1 mile short of your intended destination after a multi-state flight. Ironingly, I said fuel ...

Was it Titled, "The United Debarcle"?

Seems to have most of the classic attributes... The airline claims "non-compliance" The police side with the airline. Captains and zip ties seem, absent (I always did question Boeing Bobby on that). I guess this story does lack physical altercations. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/breastfeeding-mom...

Transportation Safety Statistics

Just heard an interesting sound-byte/bullet point: "As a train conductor/engineer, you can expect to kill 5 people in the course of a normal career" I thought that at some other time, it was more like the grand average was about 1 killed in the course of a career.

When we burn pine it is with full airflow and reheat. Good procedure! Not a problem. Violation of fundamental CRM that it's important to monitor the chimney that the updraft is not too swift, hot or roaring. Also, cowboy, improvisational recklessness...

Re: Discussion of Beech Bananza Crash - Instrument Failure

The VSI is very lagging. Good luck trying to track it. With nothing to "fix" the pitch, you will end up chasing it up and down. Look, man, I know what you are saying is technically correct. However, let me go Boeing Bobby on you and say that I have a whopping 5 hours of flight time managing pitch u...
