Re: No More Articles about the P210N

On a second thought... 1250 lb of useful load A cruise speed of 200 kts with a stall speed of 53 kts. A rate of climb of 2000 fpm A range of 2600 NM Is not a typical combination of characteristics for a certified airplane. Especially not one with an empty weight of 1600 lb and 200 HP. I kinda doubt...

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

It is a fun challenge. Many people build their own plane from kits (that are largely pre-built already). But very very few manage to build from scratch and fly a plane that them designed themselves. If you talk practical, no, it is not practical. Climbing the Everest is not practical either. Or doi...

That being said, he fed us outsiders with stories of going here and there in the 'ultimate single' . His stuff was generally more entertaining than Garrison's hell-more-technical Melmoth aeroengineering. With that I wholeheartedly concur . I still don't understand why Garrison ever bothered with th...

I may know more about photography than the JP screeners, but alas, I have no credentials. Credentials don't matter. Also, hypocrisy is perfectly acceptable as long as it's been elevated to one's "life philosophy". In related news, the most important thing about a doctor is his buttkissing skills.

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).

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.

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.
