Re: Oh, the humidity!

Aborting takeoff was a pretty uncool thing to do. Real cool macho pilots continue not only the takeoff but they fly at least across the Atlantic before they do anything special about the compressor stall. Minor correction. Cool pilots do not fly Air Busses. I forgot, sorry. They fly RJ's of course.

Re: 57 ZA! Congratulations

Bad news travels fast I guess. Thanks anyway, folks! I found out that in 3 more short years, I'll qualify for a senior citizen's price reduction for tickets to Flying Legends in 3 years short years you'll be one yourself. A senior citizen? A price reduction? A ticket? Or a flying legend? Pls specify.

That's why more advanced designs use retractable gear instead of fixed gear.

Ever since General Motors went into bankrupcy and emerged again, all within a matter of 15 minutes, I'm not impressed with this kind of news any more.

Re: 'Nother one bites the dust

American Airlines (AMR) has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
I have a feeling that airlines in the US do this from time to time to keep their employees humble and their demands for better wages low.

Re: P-51 down at Reno Air Races

a post somewhere suggested that the on-board telemetry showed 22g's.
If so, I'm sort of surprised the wings didn't come unstuck. Or maybe they did.
I saw pictures somewhere that clearly showed wrinkles in the fuselage.

Re: P-51 down at Reno Air Races

Yet another wonderful aspect of aviation that got taken over by people with more money than sense. The results have been predictable.

What is an octogenarian doing flying an unlimited racer?
It seems the term "unlimited" turned out not to be correct
