Re: Trauma reducing bucking bars. Worth it?

I’m sure they’re nice if you’re bucking rivets all day in a factory where the fuselage or wing or whatever is still wide open and free of all those bothersome system components that get in the road of every last rivet you need to buck when performing a typical in service repair. If you’re a general ...

Re: Rocket crash

Given the staggering amount of thought, time and effort that went into this endeavor, I’m not sure it even falls into the general Darwin Awards category. This feels like a whole other level, well beyond the usual spur of the moment “Watch this!” Darwinian elimination sort of actions we often read ab...

I wonder how much more of the airframe is bent or broken. Never seen one break just like that before.

I presume the Beaver wing was removed after tangling with the Otter, not somehow sheared clean off?

I hope you're using two hands to drive your plane too! :D You’re not using two hands for differential power. At least you shouldn’t be. Differential power is all a Cat has... not so for a plane.

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?

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...

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?
