Re: Fumes kills pilot

If it's worth it, yes. I mean, if you are ok with that, of course, It's not worth it. Is that a fact or your opinion? May I have an opinion that doesn't match yours (or your fact), please? I will not tell you what you need to be concerned about, but pilots are more exposed than anybody else to this...

Flyboy, they are translations from the original Russian, but these are the official translations made by the U.N.'s ICAO and appended in the Information Papers of their 1993 report. Why do you doubt their veracity?

Re: Tourist hell i chopper crashes.

How many engines would have failed in a 4-engine chopper after the pax closed the fuel shutoff valve with the strap of his camcorder? Maybe I should have worded my post better: my (fake) evaniesque thoughts were when the incident was still apparently due to engine failure (and before going there an...

These are only assertions, but I have all the references in transcripts and other testimony... The fact that after decades of "investigating" all you have are "assertions" is not without significance (at least, in my opinion). As someone who has read (and liked) your book, I don't question your mot...

Re: Ejected families, dead rabbits, dragged doctors.

It is perhaps only a PR gesture, but it is still indicative of increased awareness and a gradual swing in opinions. I actually admire what FedEx said, which was something to the effect that "we don't set or change the rates for millions of customers worldwide based on their political affiliation or...

Re: Ejected families, dead rabbits, dragged doctors.

But on a more positive note....... http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43181337 I'm reminded of a saying sometimes attributed to the great Ferry Porsche. He supposedly once said "to change an engine and to change it for the better are two different things..." I'd paraphrase this for the current...

Re: Air France Relentless Pull Up: Beating the dead horse...again...

UAS procedure was climb thrust and 5 degrees nose up. They didn't touch the thrust levers and they went for 15 degrees nose up. Gabriel, just like I explained to your best friend over there (not that he was listening and not that you're going to), but that was NOT the procedure in this case. That m...
