Re: The Greatest Reality Show ever coming to TV

Yes there have been many, overall its a great show, but a quick summary: They go flying a lot, cargo can't get to destinations because it's -40 below and they don't operate at this company when that cold (don't blame them) lots of changing tailwheels and engine parts in howling open ramps, some hot...

The second threat I would list to aviation safety is: http://torontoadvertisinghallofshame.org/IMAGES/040108%20snips_small.jpg I realize most security measures are done simply and only for public perception, but is the general public really that stupid that they think an "airport" is confined to the...

But since everything is supposed to be bigger in Texas, I expect a Pick-up Truck sized "lump" of Coal, delivered in person by an MD-11.... well if you really want to be nice anyway.

Re: Air France jet missing

How about simply a complete electrical failure, followed by a crew distracted trying to resolve the issue and begin a slow descent into the water? Not like similar events haven't happened before. Is that consistent with the reported evidence of a relatively level-attitude but high descent rate impa...

That is what I was eluding to when I said "apparent" I honestly have no idea what if any limitations todays equipment have.

sorry Brad, I thought my reply went through but apparently it did not.... FL420 can't REALLY be blamed on RVSM airspace, since FL420 is not inside RVSM airspace (FL290-410). The reasoning for the 2000' separation above FL410 is due to apparent equipment limitations and accuracy, which I would find q...
