Re: Landing on the wrong strip of parallel pavement.


Please throw me a bone and briefly discuss this.

Re: Close down the forum...

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.
Or not.

Re: Boeing Deception: 777X Wing Actually Elongated 787 Wing

A horizontal wiglet is more efficient than a vertical one.
A distinguished aviation typist by the name of Garrison or something argued that orientation of the winglet doesn't actually matter, so long as its there.

Of course, his degree is not in any kind of engineering...

Re: Aerosucre B-727 crash

Evanie said AvHearald said a long list of little things added up.

A little extra weight
A tailwind
Rotation too late due to incorrect v speed calculation
Slow rotation
Failure to switch on a backup hydraulic system
Thanks be to Krishna, Evanie clarified it for "us".

I like how neither DTW airport, nor Detroit Free Press seem to know if this was a mainline or a conx flight. And yet, some will still tell "us" to trust the media because Trump is bad.

Re: Ju-Air Junkers Ju-52 crash in Switzerland

Is maintaining and flying classics (and selling rides) reckless tomfoolery? The CRM and checklists are solely lacking on acronyms for electronic wizardry.
As you know, I'm not a big fan of "vintage aircraft operators", but I still think we should wait for the FINAL REPORT.

Oh, and phugoid.
