Re: Tourist hell i chopper crashes.

Glad you made it. Gasoline prices are up 25%. Hoping you will work on that. Ms what's her name is apparently on YouTube.

Beautiful People "Tweet" during takeoff roll.

So, there's some indication they had a plane full of people and fuel (I.E. overweight) AND maybe the attention to detail was off? (although it could just as well be a meteor strike or something catastrophic and mechanical). https://www.yahoo.com/news/instagram-model-mariah-coogan-shares-192604403.ht...

Re: Sorry Boing

If it's not Lockheed, I'm not going. Here is a much better photo. It contains not one but TWO L-1011s. The livery is much better. Steve Martin is the foreground clutter. And Flyover International Airport (when it WAS an International Airport) is pictured throughout! PS, note the 727 with the sexier...

Re: 3BS Witnesses a very rare event at Flyover International

Did they died? Any meteors involved? As we have very few facts at this time, it could just as well be a meteor. Since I was an eyewitness, I should dutifully report that the engine was reving, the plane was on fire and the gallant pilot skillfully nursed it past the terminal and cell phone lot whic...

Fumes/odor is arguably the most frequent entry in AVH. Even when it seems that airlines are not reporting most of the events (nor they are required to).

I believe I've heard that we're mildly famous for it.
I also noted the word "maybe" in your original statement and accepted it with the normal dry humour that we are also mildly famous for.
