Re: KRDU 5R, 10/14/2019

I don't think I've ever actually landed on 5R. All my airlines have parked on the West side, so it's either been 5L or 23R.

Re: RJ Pilots Gone Wild

Many people can fly a good airplane, but can't seem to understand the rather simple concept that eating where one defecates is not advisable.

Re: How often do you make sudden, hard braking during taxi?

And, more importantly, how many PSIs are dumped to the brakes on said occasions?
A lot.

Re: B-17 Hartford/Bradley

In any event, these are not supposed to be toys for fat-walleted geezers who are trying to relive someone else's glory days. Sounds harsh, but it is what it is.
A little bit narrow.
If anything, not narrow enough. Pilot was 75, copilot was 71.

Re: B-17 Hartford/Bradley

I suppose they really weren't meant to have a "shelf life" at all! Their primary mission was to fly into enemy territory and drop large things that explode. If the plane could be reused and/or its occupants all survived, that was a plus. Never mind that the aircraft safety standards of the day (in ...

Re: B-17 Hartford/Bradley

The plane that crashed was built in 1945, you said it should have been parked in 1950. 1950-1945=5 years. Ah! I see what you mean now. The issue is not even so much the age itself as the fact that these airplanes were never meant to have much of a shelf life. Aviation was developing so rapidly back...

Re: B-17 Hartford/Bradley

Do you feel that way about all planes that have reached the age of 5 years or only certain ones?
5 years?

Re: B-17 Hartford/Bradley


(Hopefully, Flyboy is not bothered by my use of "disdain" and feels I was somewhat approximately correct about his feelings.)
You're exactly correct about my feelings. These things should have been parked in 1950.

Re: Sound of Airbus Ferret Chewing Explained

In related news, water is wet. By the way, there is way to prevent that sound, when I was an F/O, hardly any of my passengers had to suffer through it, and I teach it to my F/Os also. And yes, it's an approved procedure.

Re: CAP

Maybe, maybe not. Society trains women to care about their appearance, so one thinks about it differently. It can be a sign of identifying with the role and taking it seriously, for example.
Heresy!

Modern strong, independent women care nothing about such archaic, patriarchal notions.

Well, you need to get a new lawn guy, or are you going to be like Evan and express disdain for my expertise? Do you have credentials to show? Indeed I do.

You capture a basic truth. You can put much money and effort into a nice lawn and you will have beautiful green stuff and have to periodically mow it.

We had just bought the Tauriceptor not long before I retired, but I never had an opportunity to drive it. I rode in it with another officer to training once and it seemed pretty good. I think they started buying the Exploriceptor after I retired. Haven't talked to anyone about how good/bad they may...
