There is a strong band of storms in that starts east of CVG to east of MGM. This PIREP was placed in ATL center 10 miles north of Crossville, TN (HCH.)

In the meantime, in a maintenance hangar somewhere:

-Joe, what are those screws on the workbench?

-Dunno, found them last week on the floor after that Challenger left...



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

insane! recall the time when a window blew out of a Trident (i think) at altitude and the pilot was sucked out and pinned against the fuselage for a good 20 min until it landed. i believe he lived too.


If it was said by us, then it must be true.

I don't know about a Trident, but this definitly happened with a U.S. Navy EA-6B in which the copilot was partially ejected through the canopy. He lost consciousness, but was revived and made a full recovery when the aircraft landed.

He lived, but it was a BAC 1-11

Just a correction, but it was actually a BA BAC 1-11. And the main reason for that incident, was that on the 1-11's the windshield screwed IN from the outside and the wrong diameter bolts were used to fasten the windscreen, whereas on most planes, including the challenger series (I beleive) they screw OUT from the inside and make use of interior air pressure as an added binding agent.
