Re: Flyboy's Weekly Recap (#7 in a series)

But you said "I almost charged the cockpit during a hard-IMC" Which means you were in the cabin, you can read an altimeter from that far back? What type of A/C? I would like to think without 10 hours of instrument time you've learned to read an altimeter. Allegedly it was a Trans States Jetstream. ...

Re: B-2 Bomber Down In Guam

...and no ejection capability in the B-52.
Something to do with all-metal construction, 6 engines, and small wheels that keep the wings from scraping on landing?

Re: Flyboy's Weekly Recap (#7 in a series)

I also almost charged the cockpit once during a hard-IMC ILS when we were at 400 feet and the gear was still up. If it was IMC how did you know you were 400 feet up? Secondly, is landing in VMC with the gear up better? Question 1: The dudes didn't close thier curtain and I have 10 hours of instrume...

Peminu: Good post for this supposedly aviation-minded community.

1) Watched it on the news.

2) Went outdoors and looked up at the moon.

Re: Flyboy's Weekly Recap (#7 in a series)

Correction:

Based on the typical schedule, this should be "Flyboy's Bimonthly Recap"

Heck, it does nothing but build more anticipation when we have to wait another week.
In that case, "Flyboy's Fortnightly 'Fuck-You!'" has a nice ring to it. I don't know that he'd object.
Indeed.

Last time I saw one, it looked like a little biplane with all airfoils fully stalled tumbing in what seemed to be a totally random way.

IF I AM NOT ON BOARD , then prepare to die in a big explosion and ball of flames." :l...

Episode 7 is overdue.

A massive search effort will commence.... as soon as somebody shows an interest in searching.

Ok, definately two sides to the story. Unfortunately there are ass-hole passengers that make airline empoyee's lives a pain. But the flip side isn't getting any better either. How about educating the gate agents on how to be honest instead of "how to sound cool". Recently, the gate agent told how th...

Busch was pretty liberal with charitable donations. This AM's news said, "InBev has never been known to donate anything". I'm said.

Re: As exciting as watching a plane sit at the gate.

Something's not right here.

The ground crew does not look that wind whipped.

Is this one of those cases of loading cargo in the back and temporarily getting the aircraft pretty light in the nose?

It seems that this thread is asking: "Hey Dummy, don't your missed approach procedures prevent these conflicts?"
