Re: Air Canada 777 tail strike

Interesting that this reads like a PIOish roll problem more than excessive pull up.

Are people sometimes prone to getting into PIO problems in big aeroplanies?

I thought the problem was more with small, high performance planes like Lear jets and MU-2s...

Re: 757 troubles. the latest news

The 757 is dead and buried. Please don't dance on its grave.
Noted.

But do not forget that A-319/20/21 are flying in its place.

Re: Air Canada 777 tail strike

How does smashing the airplane's fuselage into the runway qualify as a "good" landing? Please explain in 10,000 words or less.
Everybody walked away + aeroplanie can be reused (after some duct tape and zip ties) = excellent landing.
Fixed.

How do [i]we[/i] feel about the new green plan for USA...

I know this is politically dangerous, but...

-I find it rather extreme.

-I laugh that Evanie seems to like it.

-I know I may be bit red for the enlightened group here, but I would like to point out that this plan calls for large scale elimination of aeroplanies.

Re: Convair C-131 double-engine failure and ditching, 1 dead 1 injured.

Speculation in this forum has it as mis-fueling with Jet-A Fixed. Does Jet-A float over 100LL? Because the pane flew a good while at constant speed and altitude before starting to descend. I don’t know every last Evanesque detail of every airplane, but imagine multiple tanks... Gratuitous speculati...

Re: Total Kenya Airways E190 Ground Disaster

Since it involves SI units and soccer, I could not care less. I’m guessing the temperature was in the 20s.

As flyboy likes to remind us, I imagine there is paperwork involved.

Lengthy Gabrielian flight report
That’s six for six...amongst the licensed self proclaimed insider (in our minds, anyway) experts.

Donkey carts improve their relative standards.

Good job on the photos- which I’ve become lazy about posting.
