Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Physical punishment is also OK for stupid pilots and sub-stupid drone operators.
Who goes first?

Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Was the drone white with blue stripes, an AFA logo and a number 10?
No, that's not a drone, but an extraterrestrial.

Re: THERE HAS BEEN A NEAR TOTAL INCIDENT OF STRANGENESS...

Part of me still wants to call a 'strangeness foul' on ATC not being slightly more accommodating- but conversely, the plane guys were specifically NOT_saying the "E-word".
The controller could (should?) have declared the plane in fuel emergency.

Re: Cleared to land?

One key issue to your argument, is that there is NEVER a situation where you might not have to make a last-second go-around . I totally agree with the underlined part, I fail to see how is that a key issue to my argument. In nasty IMC when you run your MD-80 off the side and pilots don't have a gre...

Re: Cleared to land?

For the record and for what it's worth, I am against it being permitted that ATC clears an airplane X to land when there are other airplanes that will land or take-off in the same runway before the airplane X. I know that it is permitted in the US, it is not permitted in many other places of the wor...

Re: THERE HAS BEEN A NEAR TOTAL INCIDENT OF STRANGENESS...

1. How in the hell do you get stuck circling Fargo, ND? (This is the real question). I know this place handles airline flights and is maybe sort of a one-runway operation...and I can imagine weather and all....but still...seems strange...

I never understood if with Not_Karl you meant that you aren't Karl (which will give us a bit of information about one thing you are not but not much about what you are) if you are not-Karl (which would mean that you are everything but Karl)

Are you sure you updated your bookmark to be https and not http?

I had the same problem until I did that.

This problem can also be described as "failure to complete the post-upgrade checklist". :lol:
Yup. That was it. My bad, sorry and thanks,

I like the part where they say that the price of these planes is in the order of $ 35 million apiece... plus or minus 30 million.

Re: 787 troubles, the latest news..

Boeing’s plan to draw an airplane in the sky dumped at least 300,000 kg of carbon dioxide that they wold have dumped anyway if they had not drawn an airplane in the sky

Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

It sounds to me like the next thing you might want to research is cockpit oxygen systems, particularly how long the O2 supply will last if it's being used for all operations above 10K or whatever (engine starting, decision making and all). Maybe then you'll rethink the whole "not a bad idea" etc, O...

That was very interesting, thank you.

Well, as long as it looked reliable because of what it said, certainly all is well in the worl...

So here is the results of my internet research (partially successful I would say) It seems you'd do well to research transport-category aircraft pressurization systems in general, pay special attention to the concept of pre-pressurization (that's a Boeing term, but the idea applies across the board)...

I don't know if you really read my post or only isolated words of it (as you quoted it), but I said that: - I was not 100% sure it was a stall. That is not the same than saying "it was not a stall". It may have been a stall but there are other possibilities. - I did NOT think that "snap roll" was th...

Thanks! Does the HI ALT LANDING pb-sw also increases the cabin altitude that will trigger the high cabin altitude warning?
