RE: Would A Real Pilot Say “Roger...over And Out”?

I usually use "OVER" on initial call to a ground station that is not typically very active on a frequency, or that multiples numerous frequencies and landlines, such as a <acronym title="Kinloss (FSS / EGQK), United Kingdom">FSS</acronym>: "Denver Radio, N12345, receiving 122.35, OVER" The Flight Se...

RE: Do Maddogs Really Pollute?

Pollution is a byproduct of combustion. Even though city buses spew out thick black smoke, they reduce overall pollution emissions by taking cars off the road (in theory). Airliners can play a similar role. For example, the 777 was touted as being the most specific fuel efficient conveyance in exist...
