Re: Near Total Disaster- Flyover Style. Almost a BBQ on the way to a BBQ

#fortherecord: This was broad daylight and no real meteorological restrictions to visibility, and I would THINK this airport has pretty good line-of-sight visibility (Airport is on the prarie and not the Ozark mountains. (though I concede there could be a little 'micro' topography there.)) I suppose...

Near Total Disaster- Flyover Style. Almost a BBQ on the way to a BBQ

Not Flyover International, but Springfield Branson National (not to be confused with Branson regional whatever). A jetliner taking off at Springfield-Branson National Airport narrowly missed hitting an airport van crossing the runway driven by an employee running late to a barbecue. Surveillance vid...

True enough, but it's not like Tante Ju is exactly an awesome performer even with all three running. At sea level. On a cold day.

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

And, I note that about the time of your post, we got the 600,000-lb 747 climbing through a sunset with a circuit breaker cloud in the background. I very m...

RIP Aretha Franklin

Were it not for Aretha, we would NOT have a nun with a guitar singing R E S P E C T to a sick person who ate the fish on an airplane in one of the best aviation movies of all times.

Re: From Aviation Typists Part xxxx

In related news, the alternator did died on a particular 172M in 1979 while making my official night flight.

VMC and runway lights that stayed on full time and instructors in the right seat are good things.

I hope you are similarly trilled.

Short summary of my experience in the 747-200 sim: Veni 630,000 lbs, vidi 630,000 lbs, vici 630,000 lbs. 1. Fixed ( we didn't want to forget what it weighed, right?) 2. While we appreciate the not-so-Gabriellian brevity, I believe some details on parking brake usage are lacking. 3. You alluded, the...

Maybe the cockpit door is locked when unattended and “we” require two people present when it isn’t.

BUT how do you keep one person from grabbing some keys?

Re: Seattle Q-400

I’m still curious how the ATC stuff unfolded. I guess regardless of when he called them, there’s no way to stop him short of fighter jets. To dangerous and not enough time to block him with a snow plow.

Seattle Q-400

Just ass uming the general public will want and regulators will have some more procedures. Will also be interesting to see if the dude was an actual Q-400 pilot or how he knew to start the thing. Also, from my limited understanding- could he easily get ATC clearance? ATC would expect a flight plan f...

While maneuvering on a left base to land on runway 27R at the local Casey's in Jonesboro AR in the Vandelay Fertilizer Silverado- I had visual contact with an Air Choice One crew car on a right base to 27L.

I think we are due a flight report. Did we virtually died? Did we have problems with 0.75 million pound phugoids? The 4-lever throttle quadrant that is a "handful"? Were we able to taxi to a gate and set the parking gate without a butt chewing from a stereotypical virtual New Yark controller?

Re: MEX: Aeroméxico flight AM2431

As noted by Not_Karl, this is the second recent incident of pilots using V-3bs to abort, run off the end, break the airplane but not_kill anyone.

I glad to see that pilots are starting to use V-3bs and that it is saving lives.

Next up: phugoid training for all.
