Re: King Air, Addison

I work with a guy who is from Portugal, with Brazilian heritage, who cannot answer a straightforward question without including lots of additional detail - it's a thing. People do it.

AF - New Documentary

A documentary about the search for AF 477 has been released. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/may/30/unseen-footage-of-underwater-air-france-af447-search-to-air-10-years-after-crash I watched it yesterday, it's less than an hour (appears made for TV). Not sure if the director has sold it to an...

Re: A business proposition to ADInfo.com

I'd like in on this too. I'm a retired cop and computer geek, so maybe I could be director of computer security. Or maybe I could program the airplanes to not go nose down all by themselves. I have lots of good ideas.

Re: Former AD member

I have no recent memories of Derf posts. Maybe a few posts on jet photos a year or two after the crash. I remember “flight deck”- I think I joined- it was an interesting few months of homelessness and who knows why we landed here. This place has had some rough months in recent years. I guess the in...

Distasteful CEO pic "inspecting" the wreckage inside the crater. Awful idea. https://i.redd.it/hoaazi0toal21.jpg Guess he really needed a good photo op.

Re: Atlas 767, Houston

Curious feature that's come out today: very little fuel with the wreckage. Strange, because fuel exhaustion alone shouldn't cause this kind of event. Maybe an uncontained engine failure ripped open the tank and it all vented a few thousand feet up? But you'd need to be phenomenally unlucky for it t...

Re: Ottawa bus wreck

I have often eyed the dedicated roadways that some public transport can use to get from point to point. I've seen them in Canada and Southern California, I am sure there's one in the OC. Oh and: Ottawa has a tonne of these. RIght, but it doesn't appear to have been an issue here - rather- legacy la...

Re: Ottawa bus wreck

I'm trying to understand this one. You have a bus stop designed to kill passengers in double deck buses? Per I think I can help here. North America typically has not used double decker buses really ever. The double deckers are a UK phenomenon which are very popular (the norm) in London. The legacy ...

eeghh. Not so cool, the poor woman has been kidnapped for two months.
