Re: Japanese CRM

I would much rather see a multiple step system:

The yoke
The AI
The view of the nose vs the horizon out the window
The ASI
The model badge (to know if we are in a -200 or a -236A).
The cirrcuit breakers.

The video is almost boring... 60 MPH winds but it looks more like 20. I was hoping more for some rudder reversals.

Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Was the drone white with blue stripes, an AFA logo and a number 10? No, that's not a drone, but an extraterrestrial. No, it was brown, more or less spherical or pear shaped, with something looking like a drinking straw protruding from its upper side. Something like this: https://pbs.twimg.com/profi...
