Could it be one of those aircraft that check instrument approaches and such? I know in the US, the FAA has Lear 60’s that check airports in a similar fashion as that video, and, as I recall, they don’t show up on any of the flight tracking apps. No, such aircraft tend to be smaller GA/Bizjet types,...Jump to post
There's 4 jet engines? I see (via link as pics don't show) just the one (poss 2 if cutaway), with four nozzles either side which isn't the same thing. I don't think your design as shown is viable. Even if you do finesse it somewhat, it's unlikely to be remotely practicable. Much better off just stic...Jump to post
I've never had to remove my shoes at an airport. I'm definitely not silly enough to sign up for pointless programmes either.Jump to post
Due to the nature of the terrain and the airport, for normal operations at ASE, the landings on 15 and departures on 33 are done simultaneously. Approach will have aircraft lined up for landing on 15 with spacing to allow for departures off 33. Tower will have aircraft lined up to allow a takeoff f...Jump to post

Personally, I'd stick to PC. Apple uses all the same components these days and charges a pretty premium for it. You can easily find similar spec'd PC's for less than 2/3's (usually half) the cost of a Mac. (There used to be an argument apple once had a slight edge for graphics work on their "ow...Jump to post
As has been said before. Parliament represents the referendum result with remarkable accuracy, no clear direction or majority one way or the other. Hence the current impasse.
Of course, your average brextremist will vehemently disagree.
I really hope that the next UK PM to be a die hard brexiter. Negotiations will be so easy .... There won't be any, the EU holds the cards in deals with the EU.

Lots of amusing banter here, but nobody has asked the really important question: Is it scone (as in cone) or scone (as in gone)? :spin: Scone as in gone is the correct pronunciation.

Reading through the code and ettiquite for the American flag, two things jump out at me: The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored so that it might be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.

The answer is a mix of all the above: Airbus didn't want to include any during the design phase due to increased weigh and maintenance cost. The FAA objected and insisted it had a pair so Airbus obliged. The pair are on the inboard engines, as they are closer to the centre line and therefore cause l...Jump to post

Nope, the aircraft being pushed restricts it. It takes 9 men (3 on each main gear, 2 on nose wheel, plus dispatcher/walker) to push a Sukhoi Superjet, 12 for a CRJ (6 per wing).
Anything larger, forget it. Too heavy and too few places to push safely.

You may wish to look up the definition of ignorant, you appear to be misinformed on that one too.

I guess we should agree to disagree, but the one verifiable fact is the UK has an uncodified UK constitution and as such UK parliamentary sovereignty has been recognised to have unlimited legislative power, although the vote at referendum was non-binding it still needed parliament approval to be ac...Jump to post
Book yourself onto a "fear of flying" course. Most major airlines run them, a lot of major airports do too.

You got that wrong. If the UK does not sign a deal and does not revoke Article 50, no deal it is.

Parliament have committed to ...Jump to post
The choices are: No deal exit - Voted down by Parliament so won't be happening, by default or otherwise.
