I don't live in the area anymore, but pre-COVID after airliner operations commenced on the newly-expanded runway (September 2014), it saw just as a routine amount of use as the northern runway. Any lack of routine use on it now can most likely be chocked up to COVID.Jump to post
Something interesting I have been noticing in American cities ever since gas prices spiked that I have never seen before are people actually rethinking using their cars.

Just like every other thing that video literally shows nothing. It’s a 6 second clip that shows a little smoke in the back ground and a truck on fire.

its always comical when a team like a football team says its so hard to travel.

Forget efficiency, better engines, and weight discipline...It turned out that the world just didn't need the per-flight capacity and preferred frequency/options over a party barge.

If you turn the tiller too far, it will unscrew right off the strut. It's not possible to "unscrew" the nose wheel by tiller movement. There is a mechanical stop on the tiller, the nose wheel movement is limited. No authority would certify an aircraft that could suffer a nose gear collaps...Jump to post

It's amazing how light those structural components in the video look, for the amount of forces they can endure.
