Re: Air Canada 777 tail strike

You know, the old joke that a good landing is where everybody walks away from it, and a perfect landing is a good landing where the plane can be re-used without needing repairs.

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

I would not crash a 172 due to a loss of airspeed indication.
Pray tell, how would you crash a Cessna 172 then?
