Re: A business proposition to ADInfo.com

Can we make it a policy to fly them in direct law ONLY? (otherwise inverted won't work)
I think that today's world needs a Vegetarian Airline:
- Direct Law on the flight deck
- Coleslaw for the customers

Re: Are [i]we[/i] comfortable with how wings work?

A flattish surface moving through a fluid with an AOA is all you need to generate lift. All the other features are just there in order to improve the lift to drag ratio AND a higher max lift AND a more-benign trailing-edge-type stall characteristic AND provide volume for structure, mechanisms and f...

Marc Garneau said that satellite data showed possible similarities between flight patterns of Boeing 737 Max planes operating in Canada and the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed.

Air Jamaica 757 @ GEO

Not much detail on BBC, but seems to have returned to GEO with hydraulic problems after departure, then overrun on landing (due to said hydraulic problems?)
