[i]We[/i] are TOTALLY Not_comfortable with how wings "work".

Shipies with sails have been involved in too many Total Water Disasters. Aeroplanies with whings have been involved in too many Total Air Disasters. Coincidence? I don't think so.
PFM. I think it means Premiata Forneria Marconi.
Fixed.

Re: Laser DC-3 in Colombia

The picture says impact path so I supposed is what the plane did after contacting the ground, not before. Like it hit with the left wing and sort of cartwheeled.
Oh, I see. ¡Gracias! :D

Re: Laser DC-3 in Colombia

It also sounds like instead of performing an emergency landing under control they finally lost control of the plane. The DC-3 has a quite low stall speed and I would expect a crash landing under control to be more survivable and to leave a longer track on the ground. It almost looks like the plane ...

Re: As God as my witness, I thought Turkies could fly...

Maybe a targeted personal ban is what you need HB.
I would prefer a personal insult from FB for my signature :D

And that is why I call him HB.

Re: As God as my witness, I thought Turkies could fly...

I do firmly believe that seat-belts should be worn at all times (except when going to the tiny lav or storming the cockpit after seeing a flap misconfiguration, of course). And all aeroplanies should be banned.

You could take the lavatory as a carry-on, it can be convenient if you fly in one of those "new" 737s. I heard that Verbie did maded the lavs microscopic on those!

Now we know why their aeroplanies always did die. NDTV A popular Chinese tradition of throwing coins for good luck hasn't proved to be very lucky for one man.
