Re: 8 die in fiery crash medical evac plane with ...

Because an O2 bottle is highly unlikely and wouldn't cause a fireball by the time it was halfway down the runway....a more plausible explanation would be some sort of uncontained engine failure. Westwinds have fuel tanks everywhere. I agree it's unlikely, but "fireball" is not a bad description for...

What makes an otherwise airworthy airplane burst into flame on takeoff? One possibility is an oxygen bottle leak that raises t...

Let’s all hope there is not a COVID round 2 in the fall. That would put most airlines in to bankruptcy.
Not just airlines. Businesses and individuals across the board would be in bankruptcy if that happens.

It's the epitome of entitlement to assume airlines are "alone" bearing the financial brunt of this crisis. People from the mail room to business owners across all industries are being hit hard financially by this.

Re: On furlough: Now what?

A Masters degree in Engineering is definitely more marketable than a Bachelor's, when you're comparing two people with no experience. If y...

What features would you guys like to see in an online logbook?
1. Free. No cost, ever.
2. Open. No restriction on exporting the data to a standard format (csv, xls, ods)
3. Eternal. The website should be there for the rest of my flying career.

Re: have you parked your saving in cash to ride..

If you'd sold two weeks ago and converted to cash, you'd be ahead now and could buy back in and be further ahead of doing nothing even if the market dips a little more before it recovers.

Alas, the only way to make money in the stock market reliably is to do your buying and selling two weeks ago.

Which only furthers the argument that the price at the pump has less to do with supply than it does with the opportunity to cash in whenever possible.

Funny, because a similarly sized increase in prices is reflected at the pump within 24 hours. Yeah, but an increase doesn't hit you in the pocketbook. If prices dropped the same day oil prices dropped, the fuel already in your storage tanks, that you paid high dollar for, now has to get sold closer...

A local owner of a Chipmunk came back to his airplane at a show to find a less-than-two-year-old standing on his wingtip, with his father standing at the wing root encouraging the kid to run down to meet him. Big smiles on both of their faces. This on a beautifully restored Chipmunk with immaculate ...
