Lost Thread Non-Av

What has happened to the <acronym title="Birmingham - International (BHM / KBHM), USA - Alabama">BHM</acronym> 2008 Meet thread? It has disappeared. Can someone from Customer Service help me out with this? I want to start a new thread, but I wanted to link to it as we have in the past. Thanks.

The are immediately below the antenna; the radiused fairing suffered from erosion. A rubber-like boot was added after several of the fairings had eroded.

RE: What Is The Most Difficult Airliner To Fly?

I don't know about flying, they all have their idiosynchracies, but to get a squeaker in a 727 required luck, planetary alignment and a sacrificial virgin... Pulling the power levers to idle too soon in the flare was tantamount to dropping an anchor.

Toss in a screwball here:

Low-speed Ground Idle

On the C-130 you can select this setting, but you won't get juice out of the generators, so usually 1 and 4 will go to LSGI.
