RE: Small Plane Collides W/ Car On Approach

If it is true that the school in question does indeed teach flapless landings as standard (why??), it's very possible this was "normal" to the pilot. A few years ago I was forced to make a flapless landing in a Cessna 177 and I was amazed how long I floated. The thing just didn't want to stop flying...

Skyvector Adds Worldwide Coverage

I thought a lot of people would be interested in this. Skyvector.com has introduced worldwide VFR, high altitude and low altitude charts. Pretty cool, IMO.

I've never seen a chart of the London area. I was surprised at how complicated the Class B (or their equivalent) airspace in that area is.
