Re: How does one copy a CD...

Can the unit in your car play MP3s (on a CD)? If so I'd suggest ripping said CD to MP3 files, then do the same with a few of its friends, then burn the MP3s onto a data disc and use that in the car. MP3's...a technical loss in fidelity that the ear cannot hear...still, I feel cheated. 7? Years ago-...

Re: Another beautiful classic gone: "Bluebonnet Belle" DC-3

...and nice how you supported it.
Since I like to read in things that you do not say...is this a hidden jab elsewhere that I am not_supporting my argument this with credentials?

I DO have 100 hours in a 172 and YEARS of Parlour talking to back me up.

How does one copy a CD...

Seemed like it used to be simpler...and now it acts like it doesn't want to do it.

Just want a copy that lives in the car with to get dusty and scratched up....not trying to mass produce the dang thing.

Re: Aer Lingus argues with ATC

Thanks... MOST interesting that everyone ELSE took the route- and cue the Boeing Bobby cautionary statements and 3BS questioning him if he might not represent the entire aviation universe. Also interesting that the wording from the controller is that it was "light" on his screen. Question to flyboy-...

Re: Another beautiful classic gone: "Bluebonnet Belle" DC-3

I will bet an adult alcho-beverage that a control lock was in place.
Which incidentally could have an effect very similar to that of a meteorite jammed in the elevator. :mrgreen:

Indeed.


We may have to wait for the final report.

I am reasonably confident that the Elvis news was ALSO recently posted on the Heathrow thread and then maybe deleted by the moderators-of-poor-humour.

My memory is not 100% accurate. BUT December 2017 (+/-) someone experienced a bad weather day at Heathrow (which of course sucked WRT his travel plans and times). They posted about said experience, there . And some folks made obligatory replies about how much the aerospace system and it's customer s...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

As started earlier, given my fair number of hours operating hand-tossed gliders, I do concur that phugoid knowledge is useful, if not almost essential for enjoyment.

If it is not perfect it is worthless. Ban all sims. Yes- an illustration of black and white/all-or-nothing thinking.

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

With no way to manage AoA, turns have to be wide and changes in pitch very smooth. You want a very long final rather than a circuit pattern. It's been a while and I must have forgotten- at what point did they lay it over into a steep bank, make harsh pitch changes or aim on a tight base leg? There'...

So Gabe, you've got this tone that if the Sioux City guys had some sim time and just done 1, 2, 3, and 4 there'd have been no crash. It's not just a tone, it's apparently a fact, he wrote a phugging thesis on it. Indeed. To whom should we address the letter to tell your airline to add this to the t...
