I was planning a trip to Tucson to see that huge airplane junkyard...I think it's called Evergreen. Can somebody give me more info? How about other junkyards?
As far as random questions:
-Has it ever been recorded than a commercial airliner's wing separated?
-In case of a total engine loss and a failed restart, can a modern jet glide to a rough but survivable landing? I can see a Cessna glide and touchdown slowly but a 747-400 ... i just see it falling from the skies.
-Bringing up the question of oxygen masks in the cabin again, what is their usefulness if 02 cannot be absorbed at high altitudes in case of depressurization AND in the absence of an emergency descent (i.e. pilots are dead and aircraft is on AP at a constant FL 350)?
That's it for now folks.
