This could have easily gotten far worse.
Apparently the there is a global pandemic on the go right now. That beach is pretty empty these days.

Re: VIDEO: PIPER PA28 WARRIOR Makes a nearly Perfect Emergency Beach Landing on Treasure Island, Florida Jan 17 2021

They hit a pole and if that's the only damage then good for them.

I think it's an Archer, not a Warrior...i only say that because it says Archer II on the cowling.

Geez, I wish people would post the dates of the crash in their subject lines when they post. I saw this today and my heart skipped a beat thinking it just happened.
The date’s right there under the title on the forum index page.
Yeah the small, much less noticeable print

Re: VIDEO: V Tail Bonanza flips over on landing

Looks like they missed the runway and touched down in the grass. As they crossed the taxi way it looks as tho the front wheel/strut collapses and then they go to the left where they strut hits the runway edge and a$$ over head it goes. I just watched it in super slow motion. The nose gear was never...

The Arrow's nose gear extends forward against the airflow. I'm not sure that the wind helps it. I think that big spring is what pulls it into the locked position.

Re: boeing 737 max retrurns coming back

Honest question. If Boeing had not tried to synthetically make the MAX fly like the other NG 737s (common type) with MCAS, would it have been a safe design? Assuming of course there would be the obligatory proper training required for a type rating on this fictitious non-MCAS version.

Re: CYVR 26L TODA to read 17,250' ?

I understand TORA + Clearway = TODA. It just seems TODA is 17250' that's almost 6000' longer than the actual runway length. Just curious is it because 08 end has nothing but ocean(considering the water is the clearway) And what's the TODA like before the NOTAM? TODA is the takeoff runway available ...

Re: CYVR 26L TODA to read 17,250' ?

TODA is the takeoff runway available (TORA) plus the clearway. The clearway in this case is half the runway length. The NOTAM is actually correct.

Thanks "linecrew", you've made me realize the error of my ways - and I feel shame. I will no longer expect pilots to look out the windows while taxiing and make sure they aren't going to hit anything with their aircraft. If you happened to be the guy marshalling him I hope you gave him a ...

Re: What's with the "circle check" before takeoff?

My point is that had they included a quick look around 360 in their pre-takeoff checks routine, like I do here, then they would have likely seen me. My point is, that this is extremely unlikely. If he can't see you while he is taxiing straight towards you (while backtracking), what makes you think ...
