Re: Flight Report 9/10/2018

Not likely.
Where in the hell did I come up with that?

Flight Report 9/10/2018

Southwest Airlines: KSLC ==> KPHX==>Flyover: 9/10/2018. No failures of engines, windows nor right-main shimmy dampers. Weather Exceptionally clear. KSLC==>KPHX was in daylight and offered a very nice view of the Grand Canyon. Some crisp, but ordinary turbulence. Took off to the north and flew a LLLO...

Re: Delta 767 Blows its Flight to CDG

...According to Flightwaware... I love the speed fluctuations as I ASSume they fly "up" and "down" wind in holding patterns. The dip to 1500 feet and then back up was interesting. "Hydraulic failure" + busted tires sounds a bit scary to me- just how much was this thing under control? How did they b...

It seems that a fuel priming device failure resulted in the engine running too rich and consuming fuel too fast until it ran out. Insidious accident sequence there...and a great video of a nasty but perfect? landing. (Nasty = the crazy slow speed- was neat to watch). I suppose there's an Evanesque-...

By now suffice to say that another proposed name for this device was "wingtip sail".
Why not right-angle-spill-over-blocking-dam-device or RASOBDD?

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

OK, I buy the argument that increasing the aspect ratio can decrease the induced drag. But what about the tip vortices? If a wing is simply stretched but has the same form and lifting profile at the tip, it’s going to generate much the same vortices at the tip. I think I am beginning to understand ...

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

I thought winglets- to some extent- "dammed up" air that would otherwise spill over the side of the wing and generate wasted energy in vortexes. That is actually a fairly correct description....Now, did you realize that all your and my description works the same if the wiglet is horizontal?... Yes,...

Based on past Boeing parlour observations they simply add them later and then bigger ones and multiple ones.
