The death penalty is not supposed to be a deterrent nor was it ever implemented to be one.
It is a punishment. You take a life, we take your life. Period.
If the toilet wants to "top off" the level in the tank every so often, the most likely cause is the flapper is leaking. They are about $5-$12 at Home Depot and are easy to install. If you are unsure about doing it yourself, there are plenty of You Tube videos that show how to replace the f...Jump to post
I have flown ATL-BSB several times on a DL 757 which I believe is the longest 757 flight. Yeah it was a long flight, but being on a 757 didn't bother me any more than if it were a widebody.....my butt certainly doesn't know the difference between a 757 and a 767 seat cushion. Some GCMap distances on...Jump to post
I had no idea Bing maps was a self-supported entity. Every time I use them there's a cookie to clear from Digital Globe, so I assumed that's who Bing maps contracted with for everything. Bing Maps stopped in-house production in 2015 after all of the Microsoft mapping assets were sold to Uber for a ...Jump to post
When I worked for Bing maps, from image capture to push to the web it could take anywhere from 3 to 18 months. Production times depended on a lot of factors, too many I care to list. The mission in the OP's screen shot is not a classic aerial photography mission. The aircraft is owned by Raven Air i...Jump to post
And these are the type of comments Republicans and conservatives accept as OK nowadays. It is pretty sad. No reason to say it. Basically childish, just wanting mock others. But now so many think it is just fine and OK and even should be said. Talk about a slippery slope, the party has slipped a lon...Jump to post
So by your reasoning, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, NY Times, BBC, MSNBC, Washington Post, NPR, Time, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today are all extensions of the Democrat party. Which is something everyone has known for the past 20 years.Jump to post
And this is of interest to an international audience why?
ANet is not a local news service.

Here comes Oklahoma with an answer. https://kdvr.com/2019/11/18/at-least-3-killed-in-shooting-in-oklahoma-walmart/ Local media is reporting the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute. Oh, and an armed citizen used their firearm to stop the shooter preventing additional people from being targ...Jump to post
Definitely was a bunch of gang bangers, so this will drop out of the news cycle quickly as there is nothing that can be exploited about it.

The Flightaware trajectory suggests the aircraft never really gained speed or altitude immediately after take off and an immediate return to the airfield was initiated.

I'm eager to see in this politics forum (if it ever comes about) if the moderators are trigger happy with the "delete post" button just as they are in the non-aviation forum. It depends on which side of the political spectrum the post "leans" toward that determines if the thread...Jump to post
The reason why college costs in the United States are so out of control is because the government got involved. By dishing out cheap loans, schools raised their tuition and fees knowing students could easily get loans to handle the increase costs. This created a vicious cycle....higher costs led to ...Jump to post
When multiple local media outlets reported this incident, there was no mention about the victims being "drenched in blood" and no mention of the perps "telling us how Trump was going to take care of us immigrants". The only "news" story claiming these facts are from the...Jump to post
CM476 has turned around and is going back to PTY. Gate space may be an issue at ORD since LH went to DTW and BA went to LAS. FI671 still has yet to divert, but I am sure it will. Also, it's looking like we will have two BA flights tomorrow to make up for today. Will this be the case with the LH and ...Jump to post
Copa 476 PTY-DEN is in the air with an estimated arrival time around 8:00pm MDT. I wonder if the folks at DEN told them they expect to have a runway open by then. LH446 has made a hard left turn over northern Ontario but has not filed its diversion airport as far as I can tell. Just based on heading...Jump to post
LH480 MUC-DEN is now diverting to ORD. I expect BA219 LHR-DEN and LH447 FRA-DEN to follow. All runways at DEN are still closed. I live in Colorado Springs and tried to get to work at DEN but had to turn around and go back home. I left before 11am, and just now got back home at 2pm. I made it about 1...Jump to post
Icelandair still has their flight inbound as well. They departed after I made my post above. My guess is they will eventually go to MSP as conditions at DEN are not forecasted to have improved around their scheduled arrival time. The local media reported around 1:30pm MDT that all six runways at DE...Jump to post
Yeah, DEN operations are done for the day. The latest weather report at 11:00am MDT had heavy snow, 0.15mi visibility, 400 foot ceilings, and winds 55mph sustained with gusts to 75mph. The only aircraft in the air bound for DEN at the moment are BA and the 2 LH flights. I'll be dollars to doughnuts ...Jump to post

Most pilots can't tell an A320 from a 737, you expect them to be any better distinguishing a drone from a hovering buzzard?

I grew up frequently hanging out at the malls in the 1980s and spending a lot of quarters at the arcades playing pinball. I continued to play into the early 1990s at college. After I graduated and started a normal adult life, I rarely played as pinball machines rapidly disappeared from grocery store...Jump to post
Even before the whole Kaepernick happened, he was probably heading to this conclusion anyway. His store is located in a dying mall which has had a lot of shops close recently, especially the businesses that are competing with the "big boys" (Dicks Sporting Goods, Big 5, Walmart, Amazon, an...Jump to post
I didn't see anything unusual around that time (I am very close to Lone Tree). In the past, I have seen very bright, slow moving objects in the sky just after sunset. When I break out the binoculars, it is an aircraft overflying Denver that has a strong reflection from the sun that's hitting it at a...Jump to post
