Re: ...crash...SR22...

Re: ...crash...SR22...

I wasn't very clear about the intent of my post. I was simply trying to lay out some hypothesis which might help come up with a cause. If I had to venture a wild guess, based on my "findings" I would say a hurried IFR approach to almost minimums, the pilot knowing he was going to be tight on fuel i...

Re: ...crash...SR22...

In otherwords, IFR conditions. So another thing is for certain, if he followed W&B calculations properly, he was borderline on fuel for an IFR alternate, if not under. Willard, the crash site is on final for runway 14, around 4NM from the threshold. An explosion and a "huge ball of fire" and things...

Re: ...crash...SR22...

SR22 has a useful load of 1100 pounds. Assuming both adults were around 200 pounds = 400 Three children, lets assume average weight of 140 each, which is high, but not unreasonable. = 420 820 Pounds, not including the inevitable baggage, which they must have taken with them, lets say around 50 pound...

Re: 737-800 overruns in Georgetown,GY

Would it not generally as Verbal said be frowned upon to do so on a medium-short sized runway for a 737-800 landing on a wet runway? Something else is probably on the go here.

Re: Air France jet missing

AAL587, I said it was my theory from almost day 1.

IF that long stretch turned out to be true, if I was Airbus/air France I'd try to cover it up too...
