Re: Near meteor disaster?

We observed something similar two nights ago while on the CWRLD4 STAR into Orlando. We were about abeam St Augustine when something very bright flashed well off to the West and seemed to be heading downward. What I thought was unusual about it was that the flash was much lower than I'm accustomed to...

Re: F.A.O.: Flyboy

In case you didn't know, Flyover International Airport, while not actually in the City of Flyover, is owned (and I guess technically part of) Flyover. Noteworthy surrounding municipalities include Bridgeton (which was half destroyed to build runway 11-29) and Ferguson. We have been popping popcorn ...

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Discussion comment: In many instances of "bad instrument crashes" with airliners, the plane is very much "in control" and "is told" rather relentlessly to do what the pilot thinks is the right thing- but which sadly, is the wrong thing. Several folks have stalled (not so much Air France or Colgan, ...

The hits just keep coming.

Also, what do you mean by "most recently"? Also, to correct a FACTUAL error, there most definitely WERE military versions o...

Re: Rudder use

IMHO people are taking this rudder-reversal business a little too seriously, and/or are not understanding the subtleties of the concept.

Are too many pilots making excessive, inappropriate rudder oscillations?

Maybe I will do the double-post thing there and see how Evan turns it into a black and white admonishment while ATL's Uncle Bobby utters a classic cliché and declares that it is irrelevant for discussion due to his experience.
