Awesome thread going there. Bobby returns with his insistence that the center fuel tank did not explode / was not the primary cause.

Re: Interesting (recent) total air disasters

It would appear we should ban all overhead bins...Flyboy even concurred, somewhat.

Still, banning aircraft is probably incrementally better.

The more I look at the photo, I think it sucks as the fertilizer is pretty much obliterated by foreground clutter.

Re: Lightning detection for turbulence/storm avoidance.

Thanks. I will pontificate from my rear for a moment using flawed memory. I think the Stormscope used pretty basic ADF type electronics to locate the bearing. The strength of the signal determined distance (a reasonable correlation- but strong lightning bolts would be indicated as closer than they a...

Lightning detection for turbulence/storm avoidance.

Seems that in the 1970's and 1980's the typists-light-plane-operating-and-therefore-experts-in-all-things-aviation-bunch devoted a moderate amount of type-face to the Ryan (lightning-detection) Stormscope in Flying Magazine. In particular, they would suggest that their low-tech Stormscope actually d...

Another Another Important Announcement

I doubt he understands the subjective secret society of photo screening with crappy artistic talents naturally makes the job nasty.

Of course, this may have nothing to do with being tired of screening.

Re: AA A319 Eats Hail

Would not have happened if Boeing Bobby was driving. I know our pilots don't want to judge their coworkers, but were there better options to dodge / penetrate these storms? The gap to the South looked wider and gentler. Also, it seems they were just a few too many miles to the right...a little more ...

Re: Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

Don't bother. Time to rename the site.
Why, is someone stopping you from using six paragraphs just to say "flying below Vmc is bad and staying above Vmc is a little tricky, based on statistics of engine-out control loss"?

Re: Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

Video of final moments via Gabby, there- stall, spin, crash, burn. :(

Plane in bad shape.

There were also some eyewitness reports of an engine flaming.
