Re: Asymmetric reverse

Maybe a summer of Cat skinning should be a prerequisite to flying a plane with reverse thrust? You'll never pull a lever the wrong way after a thousand hours on a D6.

Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

I've seen lightning strike the ramp area of an airport just once. Physics chose a spot in the vicinity of a sewer grate 200 feet from any above ground features over all the assorted aircraft, buildings, antennas, light standards, etc. surrounding it.

Re: Proposal for Canada and Australia to share water bombers

Nobody's brought up Buffalo putting a 215 on a ship to Korea rather than ferrying it there. (as depicted on a couple Ice Pilots episodes) I wonder how that worked out for them in reality? Anyone know if they did that with any other aircraft?

Re: KENN BOREK in MIAMI (OPF)

They've been involved in LIDAR bathymetric survey around the US coastlines for years. Pretty sure the Basler is one of the platforms they use on that program.

Re: Jazz flight loses a wheel.

They were probably on the takeoff roll by the time it became obvious like we're seeing in the video. From that point, the time taken getting the message through to the cabin attendants and subsequently through to the flight crew would likely have them airborne. Edit: Yeah, what Pilotdaddy already sa...

As an adult, any manner of aircraft or mysterious forms of levitation might be involved. Occasionally the wires are replaced by towers, weather or other disconcerting obstacles th...

Re: RCMP arrest drunken men on flight to Vegas stag after plane forced down in Winnipeg

which led the captain to divert the flight to Winnipeg — dumping 10,000 gallons (about 37, 854 litres) of fuel to land safely.
Does that sound right, having to dump fuel to land when already 3/4 of the way enroute to the intended destination?

Re: Max Engine question

Nobody in the flying public will ever get on anything remotely related to a 737 Max again. That's a much more delicate issue than fixing the physical issues. By the time the Max flies again everyone will have moved on the the next Facebook crisis. People care about price and that’s it. As has been ...

Makeshift way of making sure the wing didn't try to fly while being slung? Looks like two pieces of 4x4 laying along the spar of each wing as well.
