Re: Humour

PS- Can't figure out why this is a VIDEO...I played it and it's a silent and still picture. Maybe he's also dumb * and motor-handicapped . *as in "unable to speak". But, being a pilot, the other meaning also applies... Honest question: What's the current, correct way to refer to a mute person?

You send Evanie first to ride his tricycle hard, and then downhill with bumps and curves on a bicycle, without proper in-type retraining. Are you trying to total-cycle-disastering him?

I feel like we've seen this before, one entire stage of an engine getting up and going walkies. But i can't remember when or where.

Re: Flight Report 10-4-2017

I looked for vents that would route heated air to the rear cargo compartment and found none...doesn't mean it doesn't go there, but I still have my doubts about how effective 'passive' air movement into an area that contacts the negative-really-ass-cold outside temperatures actually is. Did you ask...

Of course. There's a back-up wing spar in the other wing. There's a full back-up wing, in fact.

Air France A380 tries to kill all its passengers.
One engine (Engine Alliance, NOT Rolls Royce) threw out some bits and pieces. Fortunately, crew did Not_relentlessly pull-up.
