Re: Weather Meltdown 12/22

This does look a bit bad since the storm was fairly short lived, often not excessive in snow amounts and now gone for few days. 1. The storm was active for 3 days, which, in airline terms, is a lifetime. 2. The storm went through the busiest travel areas of the country. 3. Some stations are still d...

Re: Air France jet missing

Notice the warning cares nothing about what law or lawlessness you're in. It will keep blaring until you unstall the airplane. You're welcome, Gabito, keep on keeping on.

Re: Air France jet missing


my provisional (meaning not definitive) conclusion is that the stall warning is probably inhibited or non-existing in normal law.
Wonderful. Now read the article again. Carefully.

Re: Air France jet missing

I could imagine someone proposing that the Airbus is unstallable in normal law so let's get rid of the warning. I assure you, nobody at Airbus ever proposed any such thing. At least, not without a very major qualifying word, which I, as a current Airbus pilot, have mentioned on these pages before. ...

Because I think that the stall warning is not active in normal law (I can be wrong). Indeed you can be. But I am? I could explain it to you piece-by-piece but you'll just disagree, so I'll save my breath. But maybe you can explain to me why stall warning would NOT be active in normal law? Why would...

Re: Air France jet missing

Does it require pilot input to restore normal law or is it automatic once certain criteria is met?
Depends on the original failure.

Re: Air France jet missing

In fact, and Flyboy my confirm or correct this (or other), I seem to remember that once an Airbus goes into alternate law it remains in alternate law for the remainder of the flight. Negative, Ghostrider. The only abnormal law that is "permanent" until landing is Abnormal Attitude Law. Al...

Re: WWII planes collide at airshow.

It had a mid-mounted engine (as in, behind the cockpit), which in theory would allow a shorter nose and improve visibility. But looking at the plane, it doesn't seem to have made much difference.
That's not why Bell went with that configuration.

Re: WWII planes collide at airshow.

Both of the speakists talk about visibility, but there's another term for a fighter with poor cockpit visibility: "target". Maybe the P-61 is worse than average because it's supposed to be a bomber-killer... First of all, it was a P-63, but I'll let that slide for the moment. Second of al...

There's also mild amusement from there at the loss of the aeroplanie being worse than the loss of peoplies...(yeah, we might sometimes say that here, too).

That is all.
