We are now seeing the market strive again, but why are Airlines like Delta or Spirit hesitant about coming back to LIMA? Why is Southwest and American hesitant about expanding at LIMA? What is stopping them? They are probably looking at the cost of operations, and comparing that to the number of ne...Jump to post

The majority of teams are still located in the Charlotte area, and flying is an even larger part of their operations as the series has spread out. Roush Racing used to own a couple of 727s which they used to shuttle crew members to races, operating out of CLT. Jack sold those a couple of years ago. ...Jump to post

Ugh. Common Sense tells you that if somebody authoritatively walks up to you and says let me review the Manifest, an obvious question would be why? If he opens his jacket and you see the weapon, a logical assumption is that the guy is a FAM. A simple question as to whether he was on the job is all ...Jump to post

On the subject of air refuelling, why is it necessary to AR fighters and bombers that are ferrying between the USA and Europe/Middle East regions? The fighters could easily make it via YYR, SFJ, KEF, PIK, RMS, CHQ etc and the bombers would have enough range to do something like YYT, TER, CHQ or YYR...Jump to post
If we're talking cold war era, then I'd take my B2 - top off the tanks with one of the remaining tankers, and head over to Hawaii for some indefinite R&R. :champagne: Yes, because between Pearl Harbor and Hickam AFB, Hawaii wouldn't have been on the target list for a fist full of nukes...

Yeah, I noticed the tug driver just drove away like nothing happened. I would like to believe that if he knew he lost one he'd have stopped. After the bin blew off, he waited for cross traffic to clear, then made a left hand turn onto the roadway beyond the 737 - you can see it after the video zoom...Jump to post

Yeah, the extra range might eliminate a few fuel stops flying to show in North America, but that’s hardly an huge deal—there are plenty of bases and they VIP treatment. And about two hours in a fighter droning is enough. I did a 10.2 in an A-10. The show schedule tries to avoid long legs between ve...Jump to post
There does seem to be some non-standard terminology in use in the US, I've picked some of it up as I've learned and listened in on other chatter. "Cessna 123 ident" followed by "Here's the flash, Cessna 123" Pushing the Ident button is all the acknowledgement you need, you don't...Jump to post

Hawaiian's been the Raider's Charter Airlines for the past 19 years. It was the Seahawks that changed a few years ago.

The biggest issue I see is that prices in general from ISP on AA or WN tend to be significantly higher than they are from LGA or JFK. If there were parity on prices, I think you'd see alot more traffic at ISP. The potential is there. It's just a matter of finding the right mix of route, aircraft an...Jump to post
Sometimes fuel doesn't ignite, I wouldn't read much into it. When a light twin stalls like that you always think "Vmc". What has VMC, which stands for Visual Meteorological Conditions and meaning VFR (Visual Flight Rules) apply, got to do with "when a light twin stalls like that you ...Jump to post
Oakland Raiders uses HA A330s. Do they? They had been, but a year or two ago, I heard they switched carriers. They do indeed.

I wonder if that's another airframe for Samaritan's Purse? I haven't heard anything about them getting a second one, but they have been operating a DC-8 since early last year for humanitarian missions. The basic paint scheme looks to be similar.
