1959 Test Flight Crash Boeing 707

Interesting video - we are all of course familiar with Tex Johnston's famous 707 barrel roll demonstration, but the crew of this 1959 707 pre-delivery flight demonstration ignored bank angle and g limitations, and the flight unfortunately ended with an accident precipitated by the loss of three of t...

Re: Debris falls from 777 during emergency landing.

I’m beginning to wonder if the MAX has set a precedent for all future aircraft issues. Will grounding of fleets be more immediate and abrupt? I've wondered the same thing. I suspect regulators will be considerably more wary about "working with" OEMs for at least the next several years, gi...

Re: Investing strategies for the commercial pilot?

YYZ. Last I looked, I certainly have not trolled you about your commercial flying career. I am now quite done with your rude and arrogant behavior and personal attacks. I am not a first officer you can browbeat. I won't tolerate it. Don't agree with me? Fine. That is your right. Be silent if you ca...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Interesting discussion. I'd say there's certainly potential that we'll see a modest uptick in inflation rates over the next 12-18 months as the economy recovers given base effect, more normalized discretionary consumer spending as lockdowns end (restaurant meals, shopping, vacations), continued stro...

Re: Mandatory PCR Test and 3 Day Hotel Quarantine

The official narrative contradicts the published research. For example, the efficacy of masks in public use is closer to zero than 1. FFS. Enough, already.

Re: What are the unlucky doing?

Although I was impressed by how they managed to inflate the stock though. If it is actually true they screwed over major Wall street hedge funds, then it is kind of a cool story. Sure, apart from those funds that waited until the Robinhood types ran the price all the way up to $347 and then piled i...

Re: Is the Gripen E a real contender?

The fundamental problem with Canada's fighter buy is before deciding the type of aircraft Canada needs to answer the question of why we have a Military and what do we want it to do.
