Certified Carbon Free Sugar

Domino Sugar is advertising this.

There is an explanation, much like airlines sometimes make regarding some much-discussed customer service incidents.

Re: TWA Hotel Soon to Open at JFK

...the Constellation...
Maybe they should put that thing back into service... I bet it doesn't have a failure-prone system that causes it to try to dive into the ground unexpectedly!

Yes, I know, you get an aeroplanie that likes to help with relentless pull ups... Yes, I know, then it doesn't feel the same as other 737s (which is the major BUSINESS problem)...you can't play card that we are like Airbus where A320+/- are all the same. But so what...just redo all the 737-MinLav tr...

Re: April Fools?

Do you have an equation to compute the lift generated by an airplane fuselage? He absolutely does. I think it's "Lift coefficient * AOA * speed^2". There may be radians or something involved. Now as to whether Gabiee has the right lift coefficient for the particular fuselageies at 90-degree AOAs...
