Re: Lightning detection for turbulence/storm avoidance.

Thanks. I will pontificate from my rear for a moment using flawed memory. I think the Stormscope used pretty basic ADF type electronics to locate the bearing. The strength of the signal determined distance (a reasonable correlation- but strong lightning bolts would be indicated as closer than they a...

Lightning detection for turbulence/storm avoidance.

Seems that in the 1970's and 1980's the typists-light-plane-operating-and-therefore-experts-in-all-things-aviation-bunch devoted a moderate amount of type-face to the Ryan (lightning-detection) Stormscope in Flying Magazine. In particular, they would suggest that their low-tech Stormscope actually d...

Taxi speed is 30kts.

Footnote: I believe they were using the much slower unit of MPH

Of course, this may have nothing to do with being tired of screening.

Re: AA A319 Eats Hail

Would not have happened if Boeing Bobby was driving. I know our pilots don't want to judge their coworkers, but were there better options to dodge / penetrate these storms? The gap to the South looked wider and gentler. Also, it seems they were just a few too many miles to the right...a little more ...

Re: Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

Don't bother. Time to rename the site.
Why, is someone stopping you from using six paragraphs just to say "flying below Vmc is bad and staying above Vmc is a little tricky, based on statistics of engine-out control loss"?

Re: Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

*** Time to rename the site.*** A bit harsh. More realistically we ( here ) do not need to get down to every last force vector and moment regarding aircraft behavior with an engine out.
