Re: New AD Logo for 2018

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

***permanent*** I so dislike absolute statements. Your rotation of logos was most appreciated this year, and hope it did not take too much time. 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...

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. The Guardian report describes him stealing the aircraft after beginning a "start up" procedure a...

Re: Seattle Q-400

He appears to have been a maintenance technician from what I have read. I listenend to the entire ATC radio (that has been captured) and it is very, very sad. Poor chap. There's also quite a bit of video capturing the rolls he did and flying around the area. Audio: https://mobile.twitter.com/jwsthom...

Does strike me as odd that the airframe would travel that far if the engines really did "fall off".

Re: MEX: Aeroméxico flight AM2431

To paraphrase a person who claims to be an eyewitness

"the plane was taking off in high wind... the plane was pushed to the ground, the engines struck the runway, both engines "fell off", the plane then crashed"

Indeed. 3WE may well have nailed it there.

Or? They may turn out to be perfectly fine. I am willing to take that gamble. I once bought an SRS module used for $30 that costs $1000 new. It's still working.

Re: Important announcement IV

The irony here is that Trump may very well be gay. I fixed your typo. I think it's unlikely that Trump is gay, I think there is a significant possibility that Putin is a closet homosexual. This in itself is not an issue. The problem is that he leads probably the most actively homophobic first world...

Re: Important announcement IV

f*** you, Verbal, making me work. This is a reference to the socialist fraternal kiss from 1979 depicting Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker, which was very cleverly re-interpreted by artists to show other famous leaders kissing. The irony here is that Putin may very well be gay.

This is a reference to the forthcoming meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki, where Trump has reportedly requested a private 1on1 meeting with Putin, without any translators.
