As a layman, I figured out how aircraft "rotate" from watching aircraft carrier ops - via the deflection of the horizontal stabilizer upward. I also understand that aircraft, when they land, - in the "flare", dump lift through the use of spoilers on touchdown. -- I don't see that...Jump to post
For a new engine:
1. Are they required to have 5000 flight hours - dual engine ops?
2. Do they insist on single engine 5000 flight hours for ETOPS?
3. Does this mean that MTOW is indicated on a single engine?
I've been wearing them since 1987. I've crashed an FZR 600 in them, got drunk in one and tore it badly - and gave one to an old girlfriend who loved it. One of my friends from school borrowed my Eric Hartmann hand-made replica and doesn't seem to want to give it back (he's had it for over 10 years)....Jump to post
The ubiquity of e-mail does not absolve one of the requirement for proper documentation. Workflow and collaboration tools are designed for that. What happens when you leave and the juicy info is buried deep within an email from 5 years back? Etiquette isn't solely about whether you say hello, hi or ...Jump to post
Lock them up in Florence. Change the law such that it isn't an absolute requirement to have new evidence before somebody will listen to an appellant. Access to competent, state-provisioned legal representation is appalling in America. In Iran, the family of the victim have the right to cut them down...Jump to post

I dunno, to me the death penalty is a consequence for talking a life, a horrible action with a horrible consequence. I do not see a deterrent factor in it nor needed for it. Tugg Which is why is say to apply it only when "just", when guilt is not in doubt. I am fine with it being applied ...Jump to post
I dunno, to me the death penalty is a consequence for talking a life, a horrible action with a horrible consequence. I do not see a deterrent factor in it nor needed for it. Tugg That may well be. It isn't necessarily wrong. It's an emotional response. What matters for me is if it is just. And we c...Jump to post

It is a punishment. You take a life, we take your life. Period.
In terms of the medicinal chemistry of the current protocol, sedation or induction in to unconciousness with a benzodiazepene (Alprazolam) is probably only for the purpose of relaxation of the recipient. A large dose of Pentobarbital, as others have described in vet euthanasia is sufficient. They ma...Jump to post
DP is sold to us as a deterrent. For most, that works. For the rest - the ones that it is really applicable to - don't believe that they will be caught. And then they often do get caught. With good evidence, why not exact revenge? That is also a part of a punitive sentence. But criminal prosecution ...Jump to post
I lived in Switzerland for 15 years - Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich. I never liked Geneva. I don't think that you will find a bad hotel in Switzerland but you will have to pay for it. Also, public transport is very good in Switzerland and the best sights are to be had on the trains anyway - with a tra...Jump to post
Does this mean that braking was end-2-end hydraulic, bypassing the "electrical interception"?Jump to post
Hello, I was reading a trip report from another user re: an QANTAS Antarctica 744 tourist flight. They said that >60 deg S, magnetic bearings don't work. Announced by the crew. Similar, I am assuming for >60 deg N. I'd like to delve in to that for random interest. Questions: Does this apply to > 60N...Jump to post
The Atlantic article summarises it through the available factual and circumstantial evidence. A few points to consider: Steep turns - deliberate manual flight. Flying along the border with that accuracy - deliberate manual flight. 'Breadcrumb' sectors in the flight simulator. Steep fuel exhaustion d...Jump to post
Lot's of interesting commentary including anecdotes. Thank you. For anyone interested in a couple of good intro's to this topic, the reinstated USN CN course is online (plus some atmospheric/ weather/ Hydrography and GNSS content) as well as one from Harvard. Both free and accessible, here: USN http...Jump to post
Hello, I'm studying for my RYA YachtMaster Ocean certification. I'm curious to know from pilots/ navigators - military or civil - how it's possible to take shots of stars, planets or the Sun when flying at 5 or 600mph to gain an accurate (>3 point) astronomical position fix. I know that before Inert...Jump to post
