No, just need to get the plane tracking straight. I was considering manual braking, RTO function will do its job while you do yours. If there’s an RTO function, it almost certainly has auto spoilers, the pilot is just backing up the auto function.Jump to post
True, but the NTSB delegates most GA accidents and incidents to the FAA who then assign a FSDO inspector to the investigation. The NTSB usually gets involved in GA accidents where the event involves significant media or government attention. A helicopter crash would be an FAA FSDO investigation unti...Jump to post
Airplanes are flown with pressures applied with fingertips, not fists slamming controls around, that’s the difference. As the throttles are retarded, the handling pilot has to remove the rudder to avoid swerving into the applied rudder that isn’t opposing thrust any longer. It’s a coordinated action...Jump to post
I usually try for a connection with enough time for a bite in a sit down terminal restaurant—not a bag takeaway affair. I’m not eating my lap, dragging food onto the plane—déclassé. An overnight flight, even business class, I get dinner prior to boarding.Jump to post
The line-up allowance is rarely much different the the plane’s length. We used 250’ in the C-5 and 100’ in the Global. A curving entry onto the runway p, even if rolling, is going to use more the TORA than just lining up from 90 degree turn at the first brick. I’ve never seen anything used in Perf A...Jump to post
In the US, the use of published and unpublished holds is pretty uncommon. In general, ATC will just vector you until they can get you on your way - that is one of many nice things about having radar just about everywhere. I've had to fly exactly two published holds, one because the airport was IFR ...Jump to post
The military mission often requires the flexibility of four engines—often you cannot divert, for example, due to diplomatic concerns. PNAF, moving nuclear weapons, for instance. Operating in/out of Kabul, if necessary, doing an OEI departure, for another. Yes, the Buddha, uses thrust across the wing...Jump to post
Now I look at the link, RAF Mildenhall had something like a starter extension—performance planning could use one overrun for take-off planning, but not the other end. IIRC, 9227’ of official runway plus two overruns of 1,000’ each. TORA/TODA/ASRA could be 10,227’ but not 11,227’. The overrun could b...Jump to post

Long about the year 2000, similar thing happened in the AF, in fact most state aircraft. The ILS band is just below the FM Broadcast band and early ILS receivers could be interfered with by FM stations. The civilian world dealt with, governments monitored for interference, finally all ILS receivers ...Jump to post
In those days, fatigue wasn’t considered a factor—you just flew the schedule. As late as the ‘80s, a reserve pilot was on call 24 hours a day. A few changes came from it—notify ATC of equipment failures, slow to holding speed 3 minutes prior to the fix.Jump to post
Almost a jet, thoroughly cocked up by the crew. Herks do windmilling engine starts and 3-engine take-offs, so hard to understand. Windmilling start involves high speed taxi to windmill start one engine, essentially a 3-engine take-off that doesn’t fly. Certainly, “go oriented”.Jump to post
KSAN has a pretty good-sized weight penalty for 09, but if TOGW and local ATC allows, yes you could use 09.Jump to post
The Citation had Radar altimeters in 1980, every jet you see overhead now has, at least one, likely two. And modern avionics make the RADALT integral to every function—EGPWS, GPWS, TCAS, warning systems, auto flight and thrust, ground and flight spoilers, flight control laws for FBW, tail strike pr...Jump to post
Probably closest to the fact on the future.
RJs either wait their turn for review or are all problematic. Many RJs aren't equipped for low-visibility (ILS CAT II / III), or their pilots aren't certified / trained to use it. It's a relatively small issue, operationally, to cancel or delay short haul flights for weather, while maintaining the ...Jump to post
What timeframe are you talking about? Looks like 2 years - abeit 2 covid years - were there for sure, probably more than that.

I arrived before noise curfew ended at RAF Mildenhall. Eastern Radar sent me to the hold on the approach at 3,000’, maybe lower. Anyway, I asked for F100 in the hold, telling them, if noise curfew was the reason, why would hold making C-5 p’s screeching noise over East Anglia? They said, fine, the c...Jump to post
You don’t understand Vef and V1 are very close, one second apart. Depending on weight Vmcg may be long past at Vef and V1. The data considers that distance. You’re not over running IF you have taken the first step to stopping by V1 and that presupposes a limiting runway. Any excess runway is cushion.Jump to post
Take-off is engineered, in the latest Part 25 amendment, to accelerate on all engines to Vef (engine failure), one second of recognition at OEI acceleration (that distance), taken the first action to begin the RTO at V1, come to a stop within the available runway. That plan does not overrun. Vef mus...Jump to post

Am I right in thinking this is a problem specifically for the USA, because of the frequencies that have been allocated to 5G in the USA? 5G was rolled out in the UK some months ago without these problems.

Right here! Yes, only engine anti-ice installed. Never an issue, with the TF-39 engines, it probably couldn’t fly above 10,000’ if WAI was installed. It was a big, fat wing and not an abundance of bleed air. The A-10 had no anti-ice, engine or cowls. Ice would build up on the gun, the BDU practice b...Jump to post
At high AOA, rudder was how we controlled and rolled the F-100.

The parallel runways were built too close together to practically permit simultaneous approaches, so without that ability, they can't handle the arrival rate a hub requires. Is this still the case?

High bypass ratio means greater thrust lapse with temp and lower air density. Remember the two planes that the engine was designed for, S-3 and A-10, were designed for low altitude flight. As a general statement I agree. I remember years ago seeing a chart that the turbofan thrust fell off faster w...Jump to post
Looking at this YT video, the presenter has the weather on those earlier flights—VMC or at worst above circling minimums. Very different situation.
Huge difference between a visual pattern on a VMC day over flat terrain and a night circling approach with terrain. A circling pattern requires 25-30 degree banked turns at low level. He could NOT have flown a circle with a pattern like you observed—would have either sight of runway or struck terra...Jump to post
