:shock: - CYYZ, ......... WTF?? You think it's good that people died in an air crash?? I think it's truly unfortunate that people hire lawyers to try and get cash every time something unfortunate happens. But I don't think it is good that people died because a pilot(s) got confused with conflicting ...

As I was reading down I wondered if S&J would've noticed his favorite procedure. :) Anyway, I think overall it's very cool and a good thing for aviation in general from a public perception point of view. And I also thought that Mike Melvill did a great job on the landing. It looked very smooth and p...

This time, an actual blonde joke. A business man enters an office tower elevator. A blond was already inside. She smiled at him and chirped, "T-G-I-F." He smiled back and replied, "S-H-I-T." She looked at him, puzzled, and said, "T-G-I-F" again. He again smiled and again answered "S-H-I-T." The blon...

A man stomps into a bar, obviously angry. He growls at the bartender, "Gimme a beer", takes a slug, and shouts out, "All lawyers are assholes!"

A guy at the other end of the bar retorts, "You take that back!"

The angry man snarls, "Why? Are you a lawyer?"

The guy replies, "No, I'm an asshole!"

Not sure where you get the "emotional distress" thing from. I think it's great to have an all-knowing moderator to help the rest of us figure things out. Especially when TC's website is so misleading.

Keep up the good work.

Yeah, TC occasionally has outages where the database can't be accessed. Keep checking, it'll likely be up tomorrow morning. Ahramin - I guess that the main page where they state "Quick Search (by Mark, Aircraft Name or Owner's Name)" started throwing me off. The continued use of the word "owner" on ...

My vote is conditional for Wilfred Parke. Sounds like one cool customer and probably something that would have been figured out anyway, but still, he was the one to do it.

Well, basically it's because you're not only flying through the air but also flying with the air. For example, at 100 kias you're going through the air at that speed. With a 30 knot tail wind, you're still only going through the air at 100kias. However, you are also going with the air at 30 knots. T...

Interesting article by Mr. Drury. He's quite a good writer and certainly can present his points well. I would only caution people not to get too caught up in this kind of reflective "good old days" prose. If you replace aviation with almost any other industry the story can be read the same.

Recon, there are lots of posts on here with the same question as yours. It basically comes down to doing it if you love it but be prepared for a tough go at first. You can read lots of others about that. I think the key thing to remember is that right from the beginning, even now, you are building u...

If you do happen to get shot down (honest, it can happen) just be sure to have a comeback handy. A long time ago I was in a bar where the music was really loud.

I'm thinking never. The hardest landing I've ever experienced was on an AC flight coming back from Germany. The pilot had around 25,000 hours and it was his second last flight before retirement and the FO had about 14,000. They were a couple of cynical old pricks if that had anything to do with it. ...
