Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Would yu be pulling up with all your forces and relentlessly pressing the nose-up trim button if the stickshaker is shaking? Another angle...If I'm getting stall warnings, I like to do MEASURED nose overs and check airspeed and attitude and even though that does not guarantee stall recovery since A...

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

One of the things that's come out is that while an ordinary trim runaway is continuous, this thing produces a runaway where it moves a bit and stops, and then a bit later it moves a bit more and stops, and over and over but never for very long or very much at once. Real easy to not notice it happen...

Re: Lightning detection for turbulence/storm avoidance.

Whether it'd be useful is an open question. That's the crux- The typist bunch said it was BETTER for avoiding turbulence than "water droplet reflectance". Of course, airplanes are now getting their own, on-board Doppler data which I'd think is a very good way to judge turbulence too, so maybe light...

Re: F.A.O.: Ocelot, The Hell Better Aeroengineer

It is tumbling, just in slow motion. That the axis of the tumble is close to vertical is a coincidence. (Or maybe not, it probably appealed to the director so we see this part and not others.) If you spin an object on two different axes, this ends up being equivalent to a single resultant spin on s...

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

I see much talk on the subject of automation and humans and just what override abilities they have... Has the concept of "the human always has ultimate override" evolved to a very type specific over rice procedure? I kind of like the ability to work the steering wheel and get whatever you need.

F.A.O.: Gabriel, The Hell Better Aeroengineer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OacVy8_nJi0&list=RDOacVy8_nJi0&start_radio=1#t=299 Just before 2:30 on this movie, they focus on a rocket engine from a Total Air Disaster (which I believe is an unmanned test) and follow it for a couple minutes. I have always been impressed at how this engine is in s...

Re: Gabe interferes tower frequency at AEP...

Gabe is an aviation professional and would not deliberately put aircraft in harms way. That being said, the numerous, subtle colloquialisms that haunt Spanish-Angliles translation probably do present risks. Stuff about saliva and "what's happening" is a threat for a fight and relaxing and taking lif...

Re: Skylease 747F Landing Overrun Halifax

With patience and saliva. (and confirmed by Google translate)

Must be some crazy Argentinean colloquialism.

I can see a certain gutter mentality, but even that requires some explaining.
