How did both stories miss stating that the wheel was bursting into flames just before falling off?
CBC mentioned it.

You mean Jazz made the news again.

Many outlets have covered such sensational news. But few want to report facts do they?
Fixed the headline, but isn't comparing Jazz to Air Canada like comparing Chevrolet to Buick?

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

Worst Dutch Roll ever, side by side cockpit. I can think of many better form platforms out there... How many hours do you have in the Tutor? 450 hrs and still flying it.

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

I'm also curious how big the pool of Tutors is that the Snowbirds have to pull from. Did you try Google? Although the CL-41 Tutor has been retired from active training, 22 Tutors continue to fly with the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and the Aerospace Engineering Test Establishment at CFB Cold Lake. A ...

Just ridiculously lucky those two. Those lift cables are relatively low, he must have been on a collision course with the mountain.

Re: File under Darwin Award Contender.

The criteria for a Darwin Award requires one to remove oneself from the gene pool, typically by death, or loss of that particular ability to reproduce.

Since this guy survived, he wouldn't be a candidate.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines: 'No survivors' on crashed Boeing 737 max

Here is something else that might be a link, could these incidents have been terrorism related after all?

Re: Door Opening Caused Accident

You're not a Cherokee pilot officially till you've had the door pop open in flight. Non-event, just a bit noisy. There is only 1 way to get it to close again in flight - side slip into the wind and pop the little window open to create suction as you latch it. I saw a picture of a cabinet handle scr...

You're probably right. A drug overdose would solve everything.

Okay, so the engines normally run off the tanks in that wing and transferring fuel from one wing to the other is only done in the event of a shutdown? It also looks like it's a complex enough procedure that involves too many steps for an unintentional draining of the fuel tanks, so is there a locati...
