Re: How tough are those 737s? Air India Express 611

Wow! The brick wall was only 5 feet tall and located 1000 feet past the end of the runway. That’s quite the takeoff.

Re: Tokyo. Strike 3 you're out

Re: Missing airplane on flight from Penticton to Edmonton

He is suggesting: a) There is something very valuable in that Mooney and b) The police would like to get their hands on whatever it is before someone from the general public does. Drugs maybe?

Re: Helicopter down in the East River NYC

I’ve done the under water egress training 3 times and I hate it every time but I know it’s necessary. Even with goggles on in a warm pool with clear water and bright lights, I still find it hard not to panic. I usually cruise in the helicopter between 500 and 1000 feet agl but when I’m crossing lake...

I read an accident report once where a helicopter was hovering at an airport and a bee flew in the window and stung the pilot in the face. He took his hand off the collective to smack the bee and the helicopter descended and rolled over. I’ve also had a big bumble bee get stuck in my pitot tube and ...

Re: October 1, 2017 - Helicopter down near Campbell River

The helicopter was an R44. No idea what the cause of the crash was. The female passenger that died was also a helicopter pilot. She was pretty well known and well respected in the industry. I worked with her about 7 years ago.
