Would a nose-down or a nose-up hang impact the ability to grease a landing? In this close-up of a QF A380, there are 2 distinctive impacts (albeit in a very short period of time) when the front wheels of the bogey touches down on the runway, followed very closely by the rear wheels (as it pivots on ...Jump to post
Gone too soon. She was great in Cheers playing alongside Ted Danson.
seems to have spilled over to the current World Cup in Qatar.
They are both rudder and brake pedals. To brake you push the tops away from you and to use the rudder you push the entire pedal. Fyi there is one pedal on each side of the steering column. Thank you. So there's a little art to the maneuvering of the foot to push the top for braking action, and full...Jump to post
Perhaps it is time to develop Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) for planes if speed is below V1? Why? What would it have done here? AEB would create another layer of both benefit and hazard. An impeding collision would have to detected looking only at the active runway surface, not looking that ta...Jump to post
This didn't set off alarm bells with investors?

In the photo above, see the two black tracks near the boom end on the fuselage? Those are director lights-up/down, in/out. You get two green lights in the center of the envelope.

Does ICAO stipulate somewhere within its legal jargon something along the lines of:
The investigating authority must provide a final report within xx weeks/months of the crash.
or is it completely open ended, where xx -> infinity
Whatever happened to the saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"? What happens if the cameras/video feed on the KC-46 craps out? Do they have a contingency plan in place whereby the boom operator can physically eyeball and control the boom from the back of the plane? KC-10: https://www.y...Jump to post
How old is the fleet of C-130J that the RAAF is replacing? By the time the new units come in, the original batch will be 30 years old! A 30 yr old Herc isn't that old - Lockheed built those things like a tank! Plus, doesn't it also depend on the number of cycles? Has the RAAF been running the fleet...Jump to post

Ah, re-reading The Hunt for Red October for probably the 20th time right now.

The economy hasn't changed "that" much in the last six months. Germany has been seeing 7-10% of inflation over the past year, with no sign of a return to "normal" levels in sight. On top of that, the exchange rate to USD has dropped by 10%. Combine a sustained medium-to-high inf...Jump to post
