Re: End of the Line for the Dash-8?

Might not be too much of a surprise if the production followed the C series to Alabama ,or if they did a production run in India for the local market , like the production run of F16s India variants . All the hard design and build issues have been solved so an assembly point can be put anywhere , Th...

Re: O-200 cold weather starting

Adding to much fuel can actually cool the gas being generated in the ignition process . If you are usi...
