Yes, that's exactly the attitude I'm talking about. My question for you is: How does one ascend to your station in the aviation community, Cedarjet and Jetpilot, without hearing the word 'strake?' I'm just a private pilot, and I've seen the word used commonly in aviation books, magazines, websites, etc. One article stands out particularly. The topic was the Beech 1900D. One can't really describe that airplane *without* using the word 'strake.' Now, my concern is not that you don't know what a strake is. My concern is that you voiced your confusion in such an impolite manner (and that goes for both of you). It was, after all, a simple question. And I don't recall doing anything to offend either of you on any prior occasion. So I ask again: Why lash out at me for trying to educate myself? Why lash out at me at all? If you'd like to know what a strake is, try, just for a moment, to step out of your arrogance, and do some research.
