I see the difference between the AMS accident and the MAX issues as being different. Low speed vs high speed. Certainly there are major differences in what happened after the sensor began an automated process. In the 2009 accident the jet responded by slowing down, which made it much easier to blam...Jump to post
No, here’s the relevant regulation, FAR 91.3 (a) The pilot in command of an aircraft is directly responsible for, and is the final authority as to, the operation of that aircraft. (b) In an in-flight emergency requiring immediate action, the pilot in command may deviate from any rule of this part to...Jump to post
Helpful to whom, armchair engineers on A.net? The industry knows the MBTF for every component; no need for it to be public. In fact, the data is mostly proprietary between the airframers, the vendor and regulator.
In-flight refueling is for short range aircraft, to allow them to be ferried or get to and back from their intended assignments. AF1 has no actual need for it. Tugg I know plenty of C-5, KC-10, and B-52 crew that would disagree. That has more to do with MTOW and useful payload. What's interesting a...Jump to post

From Statesville? Do tell me how Statesville to Elizabethton commercial flights would look like. Commercial service is fine, if you don’t mind the security theater, the waits, the connections, the lack of privacy. There are thousands of US airports compared to, what, 400 or 500 served by commercial ...Jump to post

No, because the plane may start coming apart as the IAS increases the dynamic pressure on the structure. There was a bombing of a PAA (?) B707, crew did the standard as trained descent only to lose the tail. A C-141 had an aft door fail, damaging the tail and causing a near explosive decompression. ...Jump to post
Weather shouldn’t be an issue. Airport has an AWOS and all the afternoon’s observations are scattered cloud, 9 mile or better visibility and light winds, mostly variable at less than 5 knots. One report is they touched down halfway down the runway—not good. Awaiting the FDR and CVR data sometime nex...Jump to post
There is, too, a deep state. If you were ever a bureaucrat in the Federal system, you’d know it.

And bureaucrat at those levels knows how to “slow roll” the boss, cite reg...Jump to post
What was the departure airport?? I watched a video showing a plane landing with a cockpit view on Runway 24 there and it seems there is a needlessly long displaced threshold. There’s trees penetrating the OIS plane on 24 hence the displacement, the 20:1 plane, I think. The runway is 70’ wide, which...Jump to post

With a single engine working perfectly, that plane still requires a firewalled 33,000lbs of thrust to climb away from the airport. With both lost or mostly lost, full of fuel, pax and bags, the thing is a giant brick with wings - no chance to convert altitude to airspeed, you're screwed. Given wher...Jump to post
So if there is a bird strike on a flight, is it pretty much a given that the a/c is going to just plunge from the sky? There is not even a chance of being able to turn around and make an emergency landing on the runway? I'm surprised that the advanced system on the A320 family couldn't allow this f...Jump to post
A lot of curfews are voluntary or “soft” curfews. KTEB is voluntary and your boss gets a letter if you depart during those hours, end of story.

So if Airbus does the A220-500 will it have cockpit commonality with its earlier sibling or with the Airbus fleet above it, namely the A32X series?

What nation prohibited the A380? “Just another OEM”; what nonsense, there’s only two OEMs. Not another A380 thread, please. The plane was a bad idea, it’s not working even for EK who didn’t buy more because it isn’t as efficient as the twins.

Let me put it this way, a four-ship formation flies thru turbulence and everybody stays in position. Heck, you can refuel in formation. Glide slope deviations aren’t due to turbulence.
ARs come in lots of chamberings more powerful than .223, many very suitable for larger game. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AR_platform_calibers seb146 , Another uniformed thought—all civilian ARs are semi-auto, not full auto. But, why let fact get in the way of an opinion.Jump to post
The AR pattern semi-auto is almost certainly the most popular hunting rifle in the US, so there’s that. The pattern has been adapted to all sorts hunting calibers never envisioned in the Armalite design. Can it handle 30 - 50 feral pigs? Asking for a friend...

A line-haul tractor-trailer rig, in the US, operates about 18-20 hours a day. When batteries can produce 400hp and be recharged in the time it takes for a ham and eggs breakfast, I’ll believe in electric trucks.Jump to post
