Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

Do you have a CADOR number for this event? I can't seem to find it in the database.

Re: Full length takeoff

I forget where(australia maybe) the Antonov took out about 150' of chain link fence, and flew with it to afghanistan or something. Great vid A few of the details are a bit different but you may be recalling this one. This was also on landing. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20070...

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

Go big or go home. By 9 of these and watch the mouths drop open. Imagine a 9=plane roll! Bonus capability in the off season.

Re: Just a little miffed - preheating

Agreed. Also, if it is a smaller field, with a single operator on site, I am surprised that the person, if it was indeed their reserved cord, wouldn't just poke their head into the hangar and let you know that they needed "their" cord. I am very proud that aviation seems to be the last bastion of ho...

Re: Just a little miffed - preheating

The Director Of Maintenance would be one of the people that Pilot DAR would be there to work with. This does NOT mean that they own, control or even have anything to do with the parking spots or the power cords serving those spots. Perhaps it was his cord, perhaps it was one that belonged to his com...

Re: Careful getting fuel in Thunder Bay

Mikey McBryan may have to start another YouTube series to pay for the fill up of his DC-3. It's parked there and he is planning to go to Oshkosh.

Re: Howey Bay - Red Lake Fuel options

I've always used Chimo Air in the past but they were taken over by Superior Airways last summer and I have not been there since. I'm sure they can advise you on the availability of fuel. http://superiorairways.com/

Re: Stateside on route freq

Hi Blakey, Trust you are well and keeping busy my friend! So is 122.0 still being commonly used? That’s not the impression I got from the link you provided...

Stirling Ontario is a welcoming airport with fuel, washroom (No shower.) and lots of room for camping. http://stirlingairport.ca/ If the family is ready for a little luxury by the time you hit Ontario, have a look at the Elmhirst Resort on Rice Lake. If you book it ahead, you can get a float rating ...

Re: Skylease Cargo 747 Runway Overrun YHZ Nov 7 2018

Speaking about fuel capacity, I wonder what the runway length at Lae was, and the "usuable" runway length at Howland? Coud she have refueled at Howland, and with the weight, taken off? Tom You might want to tell them that you are now talking about Amelia Earhart. Quite a jump from Halifax to Howlan...

Re: Anybody going to a ski/ice fly-in this year?

Well, if you don't want to fly all the way to Oshkosh, there is a closer fly-in the same day. The Oak Hills Flying Club at Stirling, CPJ5, is having a Winter fly-in on 9 Feb. 2300' runway will be groomed and there is a 1600' X 80' ski strip beside it. Fuel is available (Cash only unfortunately) and ...

Re: Accident Analysis - Single Point Failure

I couldn't say for sure; I have not tried it. Definitely not a viable flight instrument but, given only minor acceleration forces, it may help a pilot to keep their wings level.

Re: Accident Analysis - Single Point Failure

This was a very sad event and one that may not have been preventable given the lack of mechanical problems prior to IMC entry and the pilot's inability to control the aircraft without an AI. It is also VERY easy to sit here drinking my second coffee of the morning and expound on exactly what this pi...

Re: Plane crash at Sechelt airport

These are always the most difficult accident reports; we have some information on what MAY have happened but no clear cause. When reading an accident report, my interest is always to determine what I can learn fron the unfortunate experience of the pilot involved. In this case, what do I learn? I un...
