Re: Flyover International Airport (and surrounding countryside)...FAO: Verbal

I don't know.....the food in the A gates terminal kinda sucks.

On my last layover, my run got screwed up because they've dug up the whole park around the arch.

On the bright side, you can still see the old TWA schoolhouse building when departing 29

Re: MD-80 Troubles, Latest News.

Well, I'm here in Nashville and the 717 is sitting here on the ramp undergoing an engine change, so I'm guessing that there's more going on than 'turbulence' causing the cowl to fly off.

PS, 3WE, if you see Maddog headed into flyover airport inthe next couple hours, wave hi

Re: Singapore Air Jet Loses Power on Both Engines at 39,000

I am aware of at least two dual engine failures at my airline over the years.....both of them were operator error induced.

In a similar vein, perhaps this airliner continued its flight because there was nothing 'wrong' with the engines when they were shut down

Re: Indiana Jones and the Safety Statistics of Hobby Flying

This is Mr Ford's third aviation incident. In the first he severely damaged a helicopter during autorotation practice. In the second, he dinged up a wing during a landing in bad weather. The third is yesterday's

Once is bad luck. Twice is a coincidence. Three times is a pattern.

Well of course it's not easy being a handsome Captain at an international airline, but what I really struggle with is deciding what to spend my massive paychecks on every month. Perhaps you could help me decide. But alas, you want to meet a 'good boy', and I have been a very very bad........(Damn-it...

Re: Playing with airliners...

An empty light plane can do a zoom climb off the runway, bank up to 45 degrees and perform a touch and go? Revolutionary stuff. Those are some amazing engineers at Boeing. Let's see if they can get into New York between the months of JUN-AUG without being subject to a GDP....then I'lll be impressed.
