You must have missed the memo that the developers don't actually do any development of the site. There is a long list of things we would like to see here that they will get to one of these days. A politics sub-forum to get all of that stuff out of Non-Av has been requested for ages, and all we hear ...Jump to post

I remember seeing the NASA example at Moffett Field in the early eighties. It operated as an airborne observatory. According to NASA historical summary, the aircraft operated with them until 1995. Does anyone know of it's eventual fate, i.e. where it was broken up? They tried to sell it about just ...Jump to post
Marlins reserves joining the rest of the team in Baltimore after their COVID outbreak using a 717-200. Not often that you see that for an MLB charter I wonder if we'll be able to track their bus trip back to Miami ? :rotfl: The Miami Marlins, after an 18th player tested positive for COVID-19 on Fri...Jump to post
Maybe this is a dumb question but how can Air Canada legally fly a domestic US flight? Do cabotage rules not apply to charter flights? Several years ago, there was an issue raised over Air Canada/Jazz sports charter flights that flew Canadian teams between US cities. Although they had been done for...Jump to post
Laws are different in different countries, but in the United States, if you are in public - even standing in your own yard - I can take your picture and post it wherever I want. As long as I don't use it for commercial purposes, there isn't much you can legally do to stop me.Jump to post
The same people telling me to order carry out still expect me to leave a tip as well. Sorry. I'm not leaving a tip for you to hand me my food. I haven't been inside a restaurant since mid-March, and I doubt I'll go to one for the rest of the year. We do take out once or twice a week - since these f...Jump to post
And can the tankers use the gas they are carrying as fuel for the turbines currently rotating on the wings or is it kept separate for the paying customers? In the KC-135 (except for the Q-models that refueled the SR-71) you could burn everything you carried, or you could offload all but a few thous...Jump to post
Agreed, but if an airline can get the official weather changed from inaccurate to accurate, that doesn’t seem to me to hurt safety at all. Am I missing something? What you are missing is that the official the airline called was not at the field and had no idea what the actual conditions were, but h...Jump to post
KC-135 The vast majority of KC-135s are donor-refuellers only. Only a small number are capable of receiving fuel themselves. Hence the caption accompanying this KC-135R/ARR photo (and a bonus prize for guessing what the "ARR" might refer to.) 2236043 I flew that bird - 58-0124 - about a d...Jump to post

Nice area. Stay safe down there Thanks, you too! Girlfriend and I have been working from home since mid-March and have limited our trips out of the house.

Why was the GOP Convention in Charlotte moved to Jacksonville? The RNC (well, Trump) insisted on being able to have a full convention - something like 19K people - without masks or social distancing. Our governor said he couldn't commit to that in the middle of June, given the way numbers were tren...Jump to post

After an internal review, it has been confirmed that the message was intended for internal sharing, but was inadvertently shared with you.

Somehow how I sense the expectation that the screening process needs to be perfect, each time, all the time. That is not realistic. As humans, we see, and perceive images differently as exemplified by the comments on this very post. Candidly speaking, if you know of a site similar to this where the...Jump to post
One problem is that "invest" is not the end of the story. US average cost of public transportation is $1 per passenger-mile, and all transit systems require subsidy - in NYC fares cover 50% of MTA costs (with tax free fuel). Our 1M area local transit takes $4 subsidy per $1.50 fare, again...Jump to post
And what about the aircraft? It did keep all 150 pax afloat until rescue and did not breakup upon impact with the water (though the panels buckled). I believe its in a museum in Charlotte right?

I purchased a Nekteck jump start unit about 5 years ago, and keep it in the car. I've never needed it for my own car, but I've helped three or four people with it.

Fascinating. I wonder why it wasn't recovered at the time. I also wonder how it so suddenly presented itself. Recovery likely wasn't a high priority in the middle of a war. The crew survived, and they probably stripped anything of use from it at the time. Tides must have deposited enough sand to co...Jump to post

It was probably filmed at Victorville, that is where the aircraft was stored. They added a fictitious scheme and registration for the movie: 6006571 5774997 Here's a history of the aircraft.

It might be a nice option, if this site had a team of developers who worked on improvements and updates. Sadly, the site owners (and don't confuse them with the moderators, who do a good job) have decided that they will put no resources into anything other than basic maintenance to keep it running. ...Jump to post
After reading the article, though, I was a bit sad to see that she surrendered the dog in question back to the shelter that she adopted it from. Apparently she had owned the dog for several years.

Sorry I can't help with the panel, but I am sure you realise that the cap badge sitting with it belongs to the Royal Flying Corps from WW1.

1) Why don't aircraft cockpits have a big-size "Level-Checking-Vial" like the one used in level-measurement-tools ?

Regardless, I still disagree with it and it is cheapening the site and the reputation.
