Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

Come on. Are you going to wait for the report to find out if the plane crashed, too? Undisputed facts: The aircraft did stall. The aircraft did spin. You can wait for the report, but I can already tell you that those will be findings. Unless the aircraft suffered from a centre of gravity issue or la...

But Buffalo is still safe because they haven’t killed anyone. That means all those annoying things like CRFI, minimums, and approach ban doesn’t apply to them.

Do what the fat cats do. Start a business and exploit your workers. Beg the government for a bailout when you can’t make it. Do it in America because they have no taxes and their debt doesn’t matter. They are doing just ok in this crisis. And so are investors especially if you bought indexed funds a...

Hard to layoff a mixed fleet of pilots from the bottom up when current speculation is this will be nearing completion in a few months.
