Re: F.A.O.: Gabriel, The Hell Better Aeroengineer

Re: Skylease 747F Landing Overrun Halifax

With patience and saliva. (and confirmed by Google translate)

Must be some crazy Argentinean colloquialism.

Re: The Shootdown of Korean Air Lines Flight 007

Question, if any one can help me with. Can ACARS besides communication to air craft through the Flight Management System control the flight through the FMS?
If you are asking if ACARS can make inputs in the FMS, then no.

Re: Not_a perfect landing.

An AT-6 with Luftwaffe markings. It's almost like RuPaul in an SS Uniform, really just doesn't work.
But this was not an AT-6 Texan but an AT-6 Hamburger.

Could he have been hit by a small meteor while riding the rescue boat? (Just being a pure ass now. Please smile :-) )
